To make the service even more accessible, an online version of NHS 111 is now available across Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes.
Accessible on smart phones, laptops and other digital devices, the online service is free and easy to use. By logging on to the NHS 111 website, anyone with a medical problem can quickly get advice on what NHS service they might need and how urgently.
After establishing that your condition is not an emergency, you are asked to input your main symptom, for example “headache” or “swollen knee”.
A digital search system then returns a list of health conditions that best match that symptom.Read More
Bedfordshire and Luton Clinical Commissioning Groups are asking people to call NHS 111 when they need urgent medical assistance, but they don’t think it’s an emergency.
NHS 111 is the best service when you need medical assistance fast. It is free to call, with trained professionals available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
If you have an injury or illness which isn’t an emergency, using NHS 111 could make it easier for you to access local health services, and receive advice from specialist clinicians. The service also allows pressure to be taken off local A&E departments and the ambulance service so they are able to focus on emergency cases.Read More
