About the NHS 111 urgent care telephone service
When should you use NHS 111
People should use the NHS 111 service if they need help or advice urgently but its not a life-threatening situation. You should call 111 if:
- its not a 999 emergency
- you don’t think it can wait for an appointment with your GP, or
- you don’t know who to call for medical help
For less urgent health needs, you should still contact your GP or dentist in the usual way. For immediate, life-threatening emergencies, patients should dial 999.
How the NHS 111 service works
NHS 111 is a telephone based triage service where highly trained and experienced call handlers, in conjunction with clinicians, will assess each call and direct it to the most appropriate healthcare service for the patient’s needs.
Corby Urgent Care
The Corby Urgent Care Centre is now open on the Willowbrook Health Complex, Cottingham Road, Corby.
No appointment is necessary, but patients will be seen in order of clinical priority, so patients may have to wait if their condition is not as serious as others.
The Corby Urgent Care Centre is open 08:00 – 20:00, every day of the year. The new centre brings a range of benefits to patients including a single point of access to urgent care services, reducing the need for patients to travel to A&E. There is also a range of diagnostic facilities including an X-ray department with extended opening hours and short-term observation bays – again so patients do not need to travel to a hospital for these services. We aim to initially assess more than 95% of our patients in less than 15 minutes.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
