NHS 111 is a service that has been introduced to make it easier for you to access local NHS healthcare services in England. You can call 111 when you need medical help fast but it is not a 999 emergency. NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Calls are free from landlines and mobile phones.
You should use the NHS 111 service if you urgently need medical help or advice but it’s not a life-threatening situation.
For less urgent health needs, contact your GP or local pharmacist in the usual way. If a health professional has given you a specific phone number to call when you are concerned about your condition, continue to use that number
Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
Need a weekend or evening appointment?
You can book to see a GP, nurse or arrange a blood test in the evening, at weekends and on Bank Holidays. Physio assessments are also available any weekday evening. Appointments can be booked routinely, up to two weeks in advance. To book an appointment please call 0300 123 7740 and select Option 3.
NB if you want a blood test in the Extended Hours clinic you will need to collect a blood form from the Fountains Medical Practice in advance.

6.30pm – 9.30pm Chester & Ellesmere Port
6.30pm – 8.00pm Helsby (Monday & Tuesday)

In Participating pharmacies, your local pharmacist can now give advice and treat minor ailments from coughs and colds through to worms and thrush – you do not need an appointment. The service is free to our patients, but for those who are not exempt from prescription charges, you will either pay the cost of the medicine or the prescription charge, whichever is the lowest. Many pharmacies operate extended hours on a rota basis. For more details call NHS 111 on 111.
