Contacting a Doctor Outside Normal Working Hours is Changing for NHS Patients

From Tuesday 5 March, patients calling practices after 6.30pm and before 8am on weekdays, at weekends and bank holidays requiring medical assistance will be played a voice message asking them to hang up and redial ‘111’ free of charge to access the NHS 111 Service.

As with the current service, the NHS 111 Service will be staffed by a team of fully trained advisers, supported by experienced nurses. They will ask you questions to assess your symptoms then give you the healthcare advice you need or direct you straightaway to the local service that can help you best.
