NHS 111 - when it's less urgent than 999
When you call 111, a trained adviser will ask you questions to find out what's wrong, give you medical advice and direct you to someone who can help you, like an out-of-hours doctor or a community nurse. If they think your condition is more serious they will direct you to a hospital or send an ambulance.
Examples of when to call 111 include:
If you don't know who to call for medical help
If you don't have a GP to call
If you need medical advice or reassurance about what to do next
999 should still be used for an emergency, for example, when someone is seriously injured or there is a risk to life.
