Out of Hours

If you or someone you are with is in a life-threatening situation, don’t hesitate – call 999 and ask for an ambulance.

You can contact 111 when you need medical advice or are not sure who to contact.

NHS 111 has been live in Dorset since April 2013.

Examples include;

  • if you need medical help fast but it’s not a 999 emergency
  • if you think you need to go to A&E or need another NHS urgent care service
  • if you don’t know who to call or you don’t have a GP to call
  • if you need health information or reassurance about what to do next.
