NEW NHS 111 CAMPAIGN
Newmarket Rd, Burwell, Cambridge CB5 OBA Worried you have an urgent medical concern? CALL 111 A NEW NHS 111 CAMPAIGN launches to help people get the right urgent medical attention.
A new campaign has launched to help anyone worried about an urgent medical concern get the right attention fast. When it's not an emergency, people are urged to call the FREE NHS 111 service to receive medical attention urgently.
NHS 111 is much more than a helpline. Depending on the situation, the NHS 111 team can connect you to a nurse, emergency dentist, or even a GP and if they think you need it, they're able to arrange face-to-face appointments.
NHS 111 is staffed by fully trained advisors who can assess if you need an ambulance, and if you do, one will be sent immediately.
NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to ensure that you get the right care, from the right person, at the right time.
