Out of Hours and NHS Direct Replacement Service
A new service (111) is now live, replacing Out of Hours and NHS Direct:
NHS 111 is a simple, free to call, easy to remember three digit number that is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. NHS 111 directs patients to the service that is best able to meet your needs taking into account your location, the time of day you are calling and the capacity of local services.
When should I use 111?
- When its not a life threatening situation and, therefore, is less urgent than a 999 call
- When you cannot see your own GP, for instance when it is closed or your are away from home
- When you feel you cannot wait or are simply unsure of which service you require
- When you require reassurance about what to do next
