You answer questions about your symptoms on the website, or by speaking to a fully trained adviser on the phone.

You can ask for a translator if you need one.

Depending on the situation you’ll:

  • find out what local service can help you
  • be connected to a nurse, emergency dentist, pharmacist or GP
  • get a face-to-face appointment if you need one
  • be told how to get any medicine you need
  • get self-care advice

You can also get:


Home Visit

If the severity of the medical condition is such that you are unable to travel, then the emergency car will bring the duty doctor to see you at home. It is possible that this doctor will contact you before visiting to check on your medical condition, ensuring a visit is needed and confirm directions.

Be reassured that the 111 service  and the ambulance service  SECAMB work in close cooperation.
