The NHS 111 service is staffed by a team of fully trained advisers, supported by experienced nurses and paramedics. They will ask you questions to assess your symptoms, then give you the healthcare advice you need or direct you straightaway to the local service that can help you best. That could be A&E, an out-of-hours doctor, an urgent care centre or a walk-in centre, a community nurse, an emergency dentist or a late-opening chemist.
Where possible, the NHS 111 team will book you an appointment or transfer you directly to the people you need to speak to.
From 8.00am to 8.00pm there is a Minor Injuries Unit at North Cotswold Hospital. The closest large Accident and Emergency Department is at Cheltenham General Hospital or Horton General Hospital Banbury.
If you are ill or injured and are not sure where to turn, you can download the ASAP mobile phone App (ASAP Glos NHS) from the App store or search the ASAP website: www.asapglos.nhs.uk. Alternatively, call NHS 111.
