A new telephone service has been launched which will give people easier access to health services and advice.
The NHS freephone number, 111, is now live across the county.
Operators will assess callers before giving them advice and directing them towards the right service such as out-of-hours doctors, a minor-injuries unit, community nurse or late opening chemist.
The number will not replace 999 for life-threatening emergencies.
