Great Yarmouth and Waveney goes live with 111!

Comments: 0

For patients living in or visiting the Great Yarmouth and Waveney areas they now have a new telephone number to call if it’s not a 999 emergency but need medical help fast.

It is 111

111 will get patients through to a team of highly trained advisers, who are supported by experienced nurses. They will ask questions which will help them assess the patient’s symptoms and give the health care advice patients need or direct them to the right local service.

The NHS 111 team will where possible book an appointment or transfer patients directly to whoever they need to speak to.
If NHS 111 advisers think patients need an ambulance, one will be sent just as quickly as if they had dialled 999.

Please would you circulate this message and the leaflet attached widely to individuals and organisations which may have people who will use the NHS in the Great Yarmouth and Waveney areas.
Thank you for your time and assistance in circulating this important information.
