NHS 111

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.
