The NHS 111 service is available via the easy to remember, three-digit number – 111. Calls from landlines and mobile phones are free and the service is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to respond to people’s healthcare needs, when:
you need medical help fast, but it’s not a 999 emergency;
you don’t know who to call for medical help or you don't have a GP to call;
you think you need to go to A&E or another NHS urgent care service; or
you require health information or reassurance about what to do next.
Callers to 111 are put through to a team of highly trained call advisers, who are supported by experienced nurses. They use a clinical assessment system and ask questions to assess callers’ needs and determine the most appropriate course of action, including:
callers facing an emergency will have an ambulance despatched without delay;
callers who can care for themselves will have information, advice and reassurance provided;
callers requiring further care or advice will be referred to a service that has the appropriate skills and resources to meet their needs; or
callers requiring services outside the scope of NHS 111 will be provided with details of an alternative service.
Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
For minor ailments you do not always need to see your GP, these could be treated at home such as sore throats, cough or blocked nose.
The local Pharmacist can provide advise and over the counter medication for a number of ailments such as high temperature, diarrhoea, emergency contraception, cystitis etc.
Walk In centres can offer advice on strains, sprains, cuts, infections that can't be treated at home.
111 Service is available when you need medical help fast and its NOT an medical emergency.
For chest pain & any tightening of the chest always call 999.
