NHS 111 offers a one-stop number for patients with urgent, but not life-threatening symptoms who want a fast and easy way to get help when they need it.
You should call 111 if:
You need medical help fast but it's not a 999 emergency.
You think you might need to go to A&E or need another NHS urgent care service.
You need to access out of hours GP services in Croydon.
You don't know who to call or you don't have a GP to call.
You need health information or reassurance about what to do next.
Dialling 999 or going to A&E should only be done in a critical or life threatening situation.
