If you need urgent medical advice and are not sure where to go, ring NHS 111.

NHS 111 is a free-to-use telephone service available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

The NHS 111 service is staffed by a team of fully trained advisers, supported by nurses, who will ask questions to assess your symptoms. They will then give you the healthcare advice you need, or direct you straigh taway to the local service that can help you best. That could be the Accident and Emergency Department (A&E), an out-of-hours doctor, a walk-in or urgent care centre, a community nurse, a pharmacy, or your own GP. NHS 111 will signpost you to the right place at the right time for your particular symptoms.

If you need an ambulance one will be sent as quickly as if you had called 999. NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Calls are free from landlines and mobile phones.
