“Don’t spend your Christmas holidays waiting in A & E” is the message from Telford & Wrekin CCG.
“NHS 111 is a free helpline provided by the NHS which is operated by fully trained advisers 24 hours a day, seven days a week. After you have described your symptoms, they will give you advice on how to manage your symptoms yourself, where to go for help or, if appropriate, will direct your call to the right health care professional, such as a nurse, doctor or dentist. The new NHS 111 app can also give the same support through your mobile, computer or tablet.” You can access the NHS 111 app via www.111.nhs.uk.
