What’s been happening

Please only call 999 and 111 for life-threatening emergencies and urgent medical help. All NHS services, including 999 and NHS111, are experiencing extremely high demand today. If you are suffering a life-threatening emergency or need urgent medical help then please call. However, if not, please think about the other healthcare options available, such as self-care or visiting a pharmacy, or please consider whether your problem could wait until your own GP surgery reopens on Monday. Please be aware that even if you call 999, unless you are suffering a life-threatening emergency, you may not receive an emergency ambulance. Your call will be triaged by an experienced senior clinician and you will be given the most appropriate advice for your condition. If when calling NHS111 with an urgent medical problem, you receive a message saying there is a technical failure and get disconnected, please retry. There is no technical failure it is simply due to demand. Please be reassured that your call will be answered as soon as possible.

For advice or information about the ambulance service or for any general enquiries please contact the Trust by telephone or email.

Telephone: 01392 261 500
