You answer questions about your symptoms on the website, or by speaking to a fully trained adviser on the phone.
You can ask for a translator if you need one.
Depending on the situation you’ll:
- find out what local service can help you
- be connected to a nurse, emergency dentist, pharmacist or GP
- get a face-to-face appointment if you need one
- be told how to get any medicine you need
- get self-care advice
You should dial 111 if:
- you or someone you care for needs medical help fast, but it is not a 999 (life-threatening) emergency
- you think you might need to go to accident or emergency or to another NHS urgent care service
- you do not know who to call for medical help or you do not have a GP to call
- you require health information or reassurance about what to do next.
Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
