Public launch of NHS 111 in Buckinghamshire

As of today, the NHS 111 telephone service is now live in Buckinghamshire. If you need to contact the NHS for urgent care there are three numbers to know:

  • 999 for life-threatening emergencies;
  • your GP surgery;
  • 111. When you call 111 you will be assessed, given advice and directed straight away to the local service that can help you best – that could be an out-of-hours doctor, minor injuries and illness unit, community nurse, emergency dentist or late opening chemist. NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Calls from landlines and mobile phones are free.
