New service to give people free clinical support 24 hours a day

A new NHS 111 Clinical Assessment Service is launching for people in north east London.

The new service, which goes live on 1 August, will now be the key contact people need for urgent care, advice or treatment outside of normal GP opening hours.

You will now be able to speak to a GP or a nurse who will be able to provide high quality advice, assessment and treatment over the phone at any time of day.

The service will offer:

  • Advice or treatment recommendations from a range of health professionals if required
  • Directly booked appointments
  • The ability to prescribe medicines over the phone
  • Easy access to patients’ records and care plans – with details updated after calls
  • Quick transfer to mental health crisis services for assessment/advice if required.
