People are being asked to think 111 first over the upcoming long weekend to help ease pressure on local health services.NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week online via 111.nhs.uk or by calling 111 for free.When you call you will be connected to an advisor who can help you get the right treatment, first time or make a timed arrival slot at a minor injuries unit, urgent treatment centre or the local Emergency Department if appropriate.Please note that occasionally due to more urgent cases in the department you still may have to wait a short time, but you won’t wait longer than had you just walked in.
