When To Use It
You should use the NHS 111 service if you require urgent medical help but it is not a life threatening situation. Call 111 if:
- You require swift medical assistance but it is not a 999 emergency.
- You think you may need to visit A&E or require another NHS lead urgent care service.
- You are not able to call a GP and/or do not know who to contact.
- You require health information or reassurance about the next step.
Choosing the Right Care
Choosing the right care means helping you to get the right treatment at the right time.
Working with the neighbouring CCGs, Harrow CCG has launched the ‘Not Always A&E‘ campaign to encourage residents to use their NHS wisely.
The campaign reminds North West London residents that there is a wide range of healthcare services available to them, and they can get better quickly if they choose the right care for their need.

GP Access Centres
These GP Access Centres provide additional clinical times, during a period when there are considerable pressures on your GP practice. This service enables patients to receive timely access to primary care services in their locality, but not necessarily at their usual GP practice.
These Access Centres enable GP practices to direct patients to a local practice that is open during evenings and weekends, in order to achieve 08:00 – 20:00 access to primary care.
Access appointments must be booked before arriving at the Access Clinics via the Practice or by calling NHS 111.
