NHS 111 service

In order to comply with the new 111 Service, practices have been requested to make the necessary arrangements for the handling of calls to the surgery during out-of-hours. As such, should you need to ring out-of-hours, you can continue to ring on the surgery telephone number above, where your call will be re-directed to one of the trained advisers on the 111 team. Alternatively, you can ring 111 directly by dialling "111" on your phone. Your call is answered by a trained adviser who will be able to assess and give any advice you may need or direct you to the most appropriate local service that can help you best. Therefore, the outcome of the call could be anything from the dispatch of an ambulance to simple health information. Patients could be advised to visit their nearest open pharmacy, attend A&E, a walk-in-centre or an out-of-hours doctor.

(Patients can also ring 111 at any time of the day for help and advice - as with the previous NHS Direct service).
