NHS 111

 NHS 111 available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.  It is a service to replace the out of hours service and NHS Direct that has previously been in place.  The service is handled by a team of highly trained call advisers, supported by experienced clinicians.  

NHS 111 can also help patients who require health information or reassurance regarding any health matter.  NHS 111 can direct patients to the service that is best able to meet the needs taking into account location, time of day and the availability of local services. 

The aim of NHS 111 is to make it easier for patients to access healthcare services when they need medical help fast, and when it's not a life threatening situation.
