NHS 111 service
111 is the NHS non-emergency number. It’s fast, easy and free. Call 111 and speak to a highly trained adviser, supported by healthcare professionals. They will ask you a series of questions to assess your symptoms and immediately direct you to the best medical care for you.
NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Calls are free from landlines and mobile phones.
GP Out of Hours Service (ShropDoc)
ShropDoc takes calls when the GP surgery is closed.
If you need urgent medical attention that will not wait until your own surgery is next open, call 0333 222 66 55.
You will be answered by trained call handlers; they are not nurses or doctors. They will take basic details and identify any life threatening conditions which may require a 999 call to the ambulance service.
You will be called back by either a doctor or a nurse. The doctor or nurse will discuss your medical condition with you. It may be possible to resolve your health concerns with advice over the phone or with a prescription to your local pharmacy. When appropriate, you will be offered an appointment to see one of our GPs in our Primary Care Centres or a home visit depending on the severity of your condition.
