When We Are ClosedNHS111

NHS 111 is a telephone service for people in Yorkshire and the Humber to call if they need medical help fast, but are not in a life threatening situation.

The easy to remember, free-to-call number has been introduced across England to help reduce the pressure on A&E departments and the 999 service.  

Available for 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, the service is for people who aren't sure if they need to go to A&E, don't have a GP to call or generally need reassurance and advice.

On dialling 111, a team of fully trained advisers and experienced nurses will assess your condition and direct you to the local service that can help you best when you need it.

Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
