When you call 111 a trained adviser will ask you questions to find out what’s wrong, give you medical advice and direct you to someone who can help you, like an out-of-hours doctor or a community nurse. If they think your condition is more serious they will direct you to a hospital or send an ambulance. 

 

The local treatment centre for the urgent care service is currently based at The Royal Bournemouth Hospital however from time to time the service might be provided at alternative locations, this is determined by the service provider and not by the practice.

 

Examples of when to call 111 include: 

  • if you don’t know who to call for medical help
  • if you don’t have a GP to call or your GP surgery is closed
  • if you need medical advice or reassurance about what to do next
  •  

999 should still be used in an emergency, for example when someone is seriously injured or there is a risk to life.

 

Calls to 111 are processed by South Western Ambulance Services NHS Foundation Trust who also provides emergency ambulances, out of hours and patient transport services.

 

Calls to 111 are free from landlines or mobile phones (although the mobile will require a minimum of 1p credit to be in place)

 

 

A weekend walk-in service is available for all patients at the Boscombe & Springbourne Health Centre, 66-68 Palmerston Road, Boscombe, Bournemouth BH1 4JT from 8.00am-8.00pm Saturday and Sunday (last appointment 7.30pm).  Please visit the Health Centre to book an appointment.

 

 

Calls to NHS 111 about repeat prescriptions

 

The NHS111 service was not set up for supplying repeat prescriptions in the out of hours period. Yet over a third of calls to NHS111 at the weekend are regarding repeat prescriptions. Therefore, we would like to remind patients that they should not ring 111 for a repeat prescription, but order in plenty of time using the practice or pharmacy processes.

 

If you ring NHS111 for routine repeat medicines will be referred to a community pharmacy. The Pharmacy may be able to offer an “emergency supply” and you will have to pay (even if you currently receive free prescriptions).
