111 and how to use it

 

NHS 111 is a phone service that’s available across London to make it easier for you to access local health services, when you have an urgent need – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

You can dial 111 if you need medical help urgently but it’s not a 999 emergency situation. It is free to call from all telephones and mobile phones.

When you call 111 you will be assessed by specially trained staff, given advice and directed to the local service that can help you best. The vast majority of calls are answered within 60 seconds.

When to dial 111

  • You need urgent medical help but it’s not a 999 emergency
  • You think you need to go to A&E or another NHS urgent care service
  • You don’t think it can wait for an appointment with your GP
  • You don’t know who to call for medical help
  • You need health information or reassurance about what to do next.
