NHS 111

NHS 111 is a service to make it easier for you to access local NHS healthcare services.  Call 111 if:

·      You need medical help fast but it’s not a 999 call.

·      You think you need to go to A&E or need another NHS urgent care service.

·      You don’t know who to call.

·      You need health information or reassurance about what to do next.

For immediate, life-threatening emergencies,
continue to
call 999.

How does it work?

The NHS 111 service is 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.  If a health professional has given you a specific phone number to call when you are concerned about your condition, continue to use that number.

From 6.30 pm each evening until 8 am the next morning, at weekends and on Bank Holidays the NHS 111 Service covers for all doctors.  If you need medical help at these times please phone 111.   The NHS 111 Service CANNOT take prescription requests, make surgery appointments or give results. 

 

The Government has introduced Electronic Prescriptions, and your prescriptions are being sent electronically to your chosen Pharmacy.  Please ask your Pharmacy for more details. 

 

If you need an urgent same day appointment or telephone advice a phone call from the doctor can be arranged.   Please provide a phone number where the doctor can contact you; an exact time when the doctor will be phoning cannot be given as it depends on the volume of calls requested.

Reminder: All urine and other samples need to be handed into the surgery before 11:30 as these will be sent off that morning.  Any samples handed in after this time will have to be repeated the next day.

Procedure For Repeat Prescriptions

Patients on regular medication must be reviewed at least once a year.  The review will be initiated by the Surgery and could be with the doctor or nurse.  Attached to your prescription is a request form, which is monitored by your doctor.  When further supplies are needed tick the items that you require and also indicate where you want to collect your medication from.  Please deliver the completed request form to the Surgery, and allow two working days before collection. It is no longer possible to request repeat prescriptions over the phone, but requests can now be done via the website above.
