• If you want to check your symptoms, there is an on-line symptom checker available at 111.nhs.uk, which will re-direct you to a health professional if you need to be consulted by someone

  • The 111 online service is effective and efficient and endorsed by your GP.  You will be dealt with more quickly using 111 online than calling 111.  Go to www.111.nhs.uk
