NHS 111 is a 24/7 telephone service which patients can call when they need medical help fast, but it's not a 999 emergency.
Calls are free and by the end of the call, the patient will know what to do, where to go and in what timescales.
In the case when the practice is closed you can call NHS on 111 to speak to a trained Health Advisor. Your needs will be assessed and advice offered or arrangements made for you to see a doctor.
Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
If you require medical assistance when the practice is closed, please call 111 or visit the minor injury unit at Sir Robert Peel, Samuel Johnson or the walk in centre at Burntwood.
Please call 999 if urgent medical attention is required eg in the event of a heart attack or stroke.
