Where to Get Help
FOR MEDICAL EMERGENCIES DIAL 999 IMMEDIATELY AND ASK FOR AN AMBULANCE
We are a remote clinical service. Not all conditions and symptoms can be assessed appropriately without seeing a clinician in person.
If your condition (or the condition of someone else) is an emergency, you must dial 999 on the nearest working telephone immediately.
If your condition is urgent, but not life-threatening, telephone 111 immediately to seek advice from the NHS 111 service. Explain your concerns clearly and follow the advice given.
If you are outside of the UK, contact the appropriate emergency services in your current location.
If your condition is not urgent, but cannot be assessed with our remote service, please call your GP at the earliest opportunity. If you do not have a GP or your GP is not able to offer an appointment, call NHS 111 by dialling 111 on your telephone and follow the advice given by the NHS 111 service.
