When to use it
You should use the NHS 111 service if you urgently need medical help or advice but it's not a life-threatening situation.
Call 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
Extended access -
In addition to the practice’s normal opening hours you can also book an appointment in the evenings and weekends. This may be with a different GP, nurse or location than you are used to. These appointments are pre-bookable by contacting the surgery during our opening times – please ask for an extended access appointment with Taurus.
Outside normal opening hours patients can contact Taurus Healthcare direct on 0800 121 7221 between 6pm - 8pm weekdays and between 8am - 8pm at weekends and on Bank Holidays.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
