Do you know that if you need urgent care you don’t need to get yourself to A&E?

Those using NHS111 would be offered a timeslot at a local service matched to their health needs and urgency to be seen.  The service will book you in to be seen quickly and safely in A&E, an Urgent Treatment Centre; a GP practice, a pharmacy, or emergency dental services. How good is that?  Saves time in waiting areas or sitting on the end of a phone!

All you do is answer a few questions. You can find NHS111 online 111.nhs.uk; on the NHSApp or by calling 111 to speak to someone.

If it’s life-threatening you should always call 999.
