People in Hampshire can now call 111 if they need health advice. The number has replaced NHS Direct as a helpline for non life-threatening conditions.
A team of advisers, Paramedics and Nurses will assess a caller’s symptoms, provide relevant advice and direct them to the right local service.
The free, 24 hour, service is available 365 days a year and is being rolled out across the country by the end of October.
The service is live across Hampshire, Oxfordshire and the Isle of Wight - and will be available in Surrey, Berkshire,Wiltshire, Sussex and Dorset by the summer.
