NHS 111 is a telephone service for people in Sussex to call if they need medical help fast but are not in a life-threatening situation.
The easy to remember phone number – that is available across the country – has been introduced to help people get the right help, at the right time, especially at weekends and out of hours.
NHS 111 is free to call and is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
The service is available for people who aren’t sure if they need to go to A&E, need more information about where to get NHS help or generally need reassurance and advice.
By calling NHS 111, you will reach a team of fully trained advisers, and experienced nurses and doctors who will assess your condition and direct you to the local service that can help you best, when you need it.
There are now only three numbers to know; 999 for life-threatening emergencies, your GP surgery and 111.
111 online is a fast and convenient alternative to the 111 phone service and provides an option for people who want to access 111 digitally.
Your needs will be assessed and you will be given advice about whether you need:
If you need face to face medical attention you may be asked to attend a Primary Care Centre.

The appointments are available at local GP access hubs, run from GP surgeries. GPs will only see patients who have a new illness and urgently need to see a doctor. They will not see patients who have existing problems. The nurse appointments are routine and include smears, wound dressing and chronic disease management that can be hard to arrange whilst at work or when you are caring for family or a loved one.
You book into the GP access hubs via your normal GP practice, and you may be offered an appointment at one of the hubs at the weekend if you call NHS 111 for urgent health advice and support.
The hubs may be at your GP practice or they may be at a neighbouring GP practice locally in the community around you. The teams will have access to your medical records with your consent, and any care they provide will be added to your notes so your GP practice can continue any ongoing care.
