NHS Direct offers confidential health advice and information by telephone or online.
NHS 111 is a free to call service which gives urgent medical advice or help for non life-threatening situations. Please call 111 if the surgery is closed and you need medical help.
NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. You will be assessed by highly trained advisers through a series of questions about your symptoms and will be immediately referred to the most appropriate medical care for you. This takes into account: your location, the time of day you call and the capacity of local services.
They can be contacted on 111 or visit the website.
