You should use the NHS 111 service if you need help or advice urgently but it's not a life-threatening situation. You should call 111 if:
- It's 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
The nearest casualty department is at Northampton General Hospital. In case of life threatening illnesses or accidents you should consider calling emergency services by telephoning 999.
