NHS 111 is a new 24/7 telephone service which patients can call when they need medical help fast, but it's not a 999 emergency.
Calls are free.
In the case when the practice is closed you can call NHS on 111 to speak to a trained Health Advisor. Your needs will be assessed and advice offered or arrangements made for you to see a doctor.
Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
