Out of Hours

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

The easy to remember, free to call number is being introduced across England to help reduce the pressure on A&E departments and the 999 service. Available 24 hours a day, 365 days a week, the service is available 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 NHS 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.

There are now only three numbers to know; 999 for life-threatening emergencies, your GP surgery and 111.
