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.
