NHS 111 is open during Easter
Even if your GP service is unavailable this Easter, that doesn’t mean trained medical professionals aren’t available to help. People who need urgent NHS care over Easter and Good Friday can still contact the NHS 111 service in the event their GP surgery isn't open.
NHS 111 is staffed by a team of trained professionals and clinicians who will direct people to the most appropriate health service.
This could include an NHS walk-in centre, a GP practice offering out of hours support, a pharmacy, or a local hospital.
However, people should still dial 999 as normal in a medical emergency, when someone is seriously injured, their life is at risk, or they could be having a heart attack or stroke – every second counts with these conditions.
To access NHS 111 click HEREor dial 111 at any time – it operates 24 hours a day, every day.
BSL users can use the NHS 111 video interpreter service by visitingthis website.
