Alert: High Demand for Appointments

NHS Better Health

Healthy changes start with little changes.

Whether you want to lose weight, get active or quit smoking, Better Health is here with lots of free tools and support.

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.
