NHS 111 goes live across Devon on Tuesday 3rd September 2013
This replaces NHS Direct which will be switched off in Devon shortly after go-live of NHS 111.
It goes live in Devon on September 3rd 2013. The out of hours GP calls to Devon Doctors will be gradually migrated over to 111 between October and April next year.
NHS 111 is available 24-hours-a-day, 365 days a year. Calls from landlines and mobile phones are free. When patients call 111 they will be assessed, given healthcare advice and directed to the local service that can help them – that could be an out-of-hours doctor, walk-in centre, community nurse, emergency dentist or late opening chemist. If an emergency ambulance is required then this will be arranged automatically.
Patient feedback on the new service is very important, good or bad. If you wish to give feedback on
