What is this about?
NHS 111 is now available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and calls from both landlines and mobiles are free. The service is part of a national programme to make it easier for the public to access urgent health services.
Dialing 111 will get you through to a team of fully trained call advisers, who are supported by experienced nurses. They will ask you questions to assess your symptoms, and give you the healthcare advice you need or direct you to the right local service. The NHS 111 team will, where possible, book you an appointment or transfer you directly to the people you need to speak to. If they think you need an ambulance, they will send one immediately, just as if you had originally dialled 999.

Did you know you can now have your say to help improve more services across the NHS? The Friends and Family Test is about giving patients the opportunity to provide quick feedback on their care and treatment experience. It's already in use in many parts of the NHS and is expanding to a lot more. You can say what is going well and what can be improved so that people who make decisions about local healthcare can take your views into account. It doesn't take long and you don't need to give your details on your feedback form. Look for details in the reception waiting room or click here.
This practice is now using the Patient Access Medical Record Viewer, an online system which enables you to view your medical record using a personal computer, or other device, and the internet. The Patient Access Medical Record Viewer is a website that enables you to view the information that the practice holds about you easily and quickly. It includes the following facilities:
- blue information buttons beside the names of medications, medical problems and test results, which you can click to access easy-to-understand and accurate information tailored to your specific medical problems and test results;
- patient information leaflets, including links to the websites of national patient organisations such as Asthma UK and Diabetes UK, where you can find further useful information.
The structure of the NHS has changed with the advent of a new way of providing services to the population. In the past, we had Primary Care Trusts (PCTs) which commissioned services. This meant that each PCT would find and procure services which they felt were needed for their local population. The new structure, which is now in place, has turned this around and now General Practitioners are in the driving seat!
