NHS 111 is the free number to call when you have an urgent healthcare need. It directs you to the right local service, first time.
You will be asked to give brief details of the patient and the medical problem and provide a telephone number for the duty doctor to call you back on.
All contacts with the out of hours service are forwarded to the practice the next working day, ensuring that appointment follow ups can be made, if necessary.
This Out of Hours service is provided by East of England Ambulance Service.
