111 is the NHS non-emergency number. It's fast, easy and free. NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Calls are free from landlines and mobile phones.
The NHS 111 service is staffed by a team of fully trained advisers, supported by experienced nurses and paramedics. They'll ask you questions to assess your symptoms, then give you the healthcare advice you need or direct you to the local service that can help you best.
That could be A&E, an out-of-hours doctor, an urgent care centre, a walk-in centre, a community nurse, an emergency dentist, or a late-opening chemist.
Where possible, the NHS 111 team will book you an appointment or transfer you directly to the people you need to speak to.
