NHS 111 is a new service being introduced to make it easier for you to access local NHS healthcare services. You can now call 111 when you need medical help fast, but it isn’t a 999 emergency.
NHS 111 is free to call and is a fast and easy way to get the right help – whatever your need, wherever you are, and whatever the time.
You should use the NHS 111 service if you urgently need medical help or advice but it's not a life-threatening situation.
For immediate, life-threatening emergencies, continue to call 999.
