Choose NHS 111 first over Easter

Posted on April 1st, 2021

 

If you need urgent NHS care over the Easter weekend, contact the NHS 111 service, especially on Friday 2 April (Good Friday) and Monday 5 April (Easter Monday) when GP practices will be closed.

NHS 111 is staffed by a team of trained professionals and clinicians who will direct people to the most appropriate health service.

This could include an NHS walk-in centre, a GP practice offering out of hours support, a pharmacy, or a local hospital.

If patients are assessed as needing to attend a hospital Emergency Department or NHS Walk-in Centre, they will be given a booked time slot to be seen to help manage demand and ensure patients are safely socially distanced while they wait.

However people should still dial 999 as normal in a medical emergency, such as when someone is seriously injured, their life is at risk, or they could be having a heart attack or stroke – every second counts with these conditions.

Please be aware that whilst many local pharmacies are still open over Easter, some will be closed and many will be operating with different opening times to normal.

For the full list of Easter opening times for pharmacies in Liverpool, please click here or contact NHS 111 for further advice on your nearest open branch.

Please also remember that access to local NHS walk-in centres continues to be by telephone triage and pre-booked appointments only during Covid-19 – contact NHS 111 or call 0300 100 1004 to access this service.

To access NHS 111, go to 111.nhs.uk or dial 111 at any time – it operates 24 hours a day, every day.

BSL users can use the NHS 111 video interpreter service by going to www.interpreternow.co.uk/nhs111.
