Finding Local Services

NHS 111

From April 1, 2016 NHS 111 should be your first point of contact if you need medical help fast but your situation is not life-threatening. If it’s not 999 it should be 111.

Available 24 hours a day, every day of the year, NHS 111 is free to call from any phone, mobile or landline.

If you need an ambulance, the NHS 111 adviser will arrange for one to come to you, without you having to dial 999.

A trained adviser, supported by doctors and nurses, will ask you a series of questions designed to assess your symptoms and direct you to the most appropriate care or advice.

For all other non-urgent healthcare, contact your local pharmacist, nurse, GP or usual place of care, or if you have been given a specific phone number to call about your condition, please continue to use that number.

Call 111 if:

* You need medical help fast but it's not a 999 emergency
* You think you need to go to A&E or need another NHS urgent care service?
* You don't know who to call or you are not registered with a GP
* You need health information or reassurance about what to do next

For all other non-urgent healthcare, contact your local pharmacist, nurse, GP or usual place of care, or if you have been given a specific phone number to call about your condition, please continue to use that number.

For immediate, life-threatening emergencies, always call 999.

West Cheshire Local Offer

The Local Offer sets out information about services available for children and young people with SEN and disabilities, aged 0 to 25, including education, health, leisure and social care. It is part of the new Special Educational Needs (SEN) Code of Practice which requires local authorities to put information on all services in one place. The site is currently under development and can be accessed through the following link:
