NHS 111

A free, 24hr/365-day telephone service.

Dial 111 if:

  • You need medical help fast - but it's not a 999 emergency
  • You think you need to go to A&E or need another NHS urgent care service
  • 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.


If you are worried by your own circumstances or those of others, extensive and very helpful information on social care and health is offered by East Sussex County Council.
