Patients urged to use NHS 111 service

Patients in need of out-of-hours medical care have been urged to take advantage of the NHS 111 phone system when seeking help.

The 24-hour service, which was launched earlier this year, offers help for people who need medical attention but do not have a 999 emergency and is staffed by fully-trained advisors.

Staff can assess symptoms, transfer callers to an out-of-hours service, and book appointments where possible.
