If you need urgent medical treatment and your GP surgery is closed call your NHS out-of-hours service 03000 33 33 33.
This service is only for urgent medical problems that can’t wait until normal surgery hours to be dealt with.
When it's less urgent than 999, you can call 111.
NHS 111 is a new service that's being introduced to make it easier for you to access local NHS healthcare services.
You can call 111 when you need medical help fast but it’s not a 999 emergency.
NHS 111 is a fast and easy way to get the right help, whatever the time.
