In November, NHS England and NHS Improvement launched the next phase of the latest ‘Help Us, Help You’ campaign which focuses on NHS 111 online.
If you have an urgent but not-life-threatening medical need, make sure you visit NHS 111 online first rather than going straight to A&E. NHS 111 online will help you right away and, if needed, a healthcare professional will call you.
NHS 111 online makes it easier for patients to get the treatment they need in the right place. The service can also direct patients to urgent treatment centres/walk in centres, GPs, pharmacies, emergency dental services or other more appropriate local services.
NHS 111 online can also tell you where to get help for your symptoms, how to find general health information and advice, where to get emergency supplies of your prescribed medicines and how to get a repeat prescription.
If you or your loved one have a life-threatening illness or injury then you should always dial 999.
Don’t forget to #Spare5 to share your experiences of NHS 111 on the Healthwatch Wirral Feedback Centre, so that we can share what’s working and what could be improved:
