Out of Hours and Emergencies
111 is the NHS non-emergency number. It’s fast, easy and free.
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 direct you to the best medical care for you, which may include booking you an appointment or arranging a visit from a GP outside our opening hours, although this will not be your usual GP.
In a genuine emergency (threat to life) you should call 999.
Online services allow you to:
- book, check or cancel appointments with a GP, nurse or other healthcare professional
- order repeat prescriptions
- see parts of your health record, including information about medicines, vaccinations and test results
- see communications between your GP surgery and other services, such as hospitals
