999 vs 111

By Skaur 15 Nov 2016

NHS 111 is the NHS non-emergency number. It’s fast, easy and free.  

You can call 111 when:

  • you need medical help fast but it's not a 999 emergency.
  • you think you need to go to A&E or need another NHS urgent care service.
  • you don't know who to call or you don't have a GP to call.
  • you need health information or reassurance about what to do next.

Call 111 and speak to a highly trained adviser, supported by healthcare professionals.

They will ask you a series of questions to assess your symptoms and immediately direct you to the best medical care for you.

NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Calls are FREE from landlines and mobile phones.
