PATIENT SURVEY 2014

Due to the complexity and size of this survey we have broken the results down into several files.

NHS 111 – Is a new medical telephone service and is now available in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.
NHS 111 has been introduced to help make it easier for residents to access local health services, advice and information. People living in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough can now call 111 when in need of medical help fast, but it isn’t a 999 emergency. 111 is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year and calls from landlines and mobile phones are free.
When to use it
You should use the NHS 111 service if you urgently need medical help or advice but it's not a life-threatening situation.
You should call 111 if:
• it’s not a 999 emergency
• they think they need to go to A&E or another NHS urgent care service;
• they don’t think they can wait for an appointment with their GP; or
• they don’t know who to call for medical help.
For immediate, life-threatening emergencies, people should continue to call 999.
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.
