Need urgent advice? Call NHS 111

If you become unwell and are unable to get to a Pharmacy or need medical help fast, the NHS 111 service based at St Mary’s Hospital is able to advise and direct you to the service which can help.

When to call:

  • If you need medical help fast but it’s not a 999 emergency
  • If you think you need to go to the Emergency Department
  • If you don’t know who to call
  • If you need health information or reassurance about what to do next

If it’s something that is non urgent and can wait, contact your GP when they re-open after the weekend or visit one of the community Pharmacies open.
