New NHS number for urgent medical care
NHS 111 is a new telephone service for people in West 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 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 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.
