About NHS 111
NHS 111 is intended to make it easier for you to access local health services when your GP practice is closed. The number is available 24/7 and calls are free from landlines and mobiles.
Out Of Hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
