N.B. The out-of-hours service in Leicester is provided by Central Notts Clinical Services Ltd on behalf of the practice.
You can call 111 when you need medical help fast but it’s not a 999 emergency.
When you call 111, a trained adviser will ask you questions to find out what’s wrong, give you medical advice and direct you to someone who can help you, like an out-of-hour doctor or a community nurse.
When to use it
You should use the NHS 111 service if you urgently need medical help or advice but it's not a life-threatening situation and the GP surgery is closed.
For immediate, life-threatening emergencies, continue to call 999.
For less urgent health needs, contact us at the surgery or your local pharmacist in the usual way.
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.
