GP Services (out-of-hours) 111 is a NHS telephone number which makes it easier for you to access local health services. You can now call 111 when you need medical help fast, but it isn’t a 999 emergency.
You will be assessed, given advice and directed straightaway to the local service that can help you best. That could be the emergency department, an out-of-hours doctor, a walk-in centre, community nurse, emergency dentist or a late opening chemist.
Calls are free from landline and mobile phones, and you can ring the 111 number 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
