NHS 111

NHS 111 is much more than a helpline – if you’re worried about an urgent medical concern call 111 to speak to a fully trained advisor.

Depending on the situation, they can find out which local service can help you, connect you to a nurse, emergency dentist, pharmacist or GP and arrange a face-to-face appointment if they think you need one or they can help you get self-care advice.
