NHS 111 is a new telephone service for people in Sussex to call if they need medical help fast but are not in a life-threatening situation.
The easy to remember phone number – that is available across the country - has been introduced to help people get the right help, at the right time, especially at weekends and out of hours.
NHS 111 is free to call and is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
The service is available for people who aren’t sure if they need to go to A&E, need more information about where to get NHS help or generally need reassurance and advice.
By calling NHS 111, you will reach a team of fully trained advisers, and experienced nurses and doctors who will assess your condition and direct you to the local service that can help you best, when you need it.
There are now only three numbers to know; 999 for life-threatening emergencies, your GP surgery and 111.
