The NHS 111 service is staffed by a team of fully trained advisers, supported by experienced nurses. They will ask you questions to assess your symptoms, then give you the healthcare advice you need or direct you straightaway to the local service that can help you best. That could be A&E, an out-of-hours doctor, an urgent care centre or a walk-in centre, a community nurse, an emergency dentist or a late-opening chemist.
Calls to 111 are recorded. All calls and the records created are maintained securely, and will only be shared with others directly involved with your care.

There will be two significant changes to the out of hours General Practice service in the next few weeks.
From Tuesday March 12th all out of hours calls will be taken by the new NHS 111 service
Instead of out of hours calls being diverted to North Staffs Urgent Care at Basford, patients who require out of hours advice or consultations will be asked to phone 111. This new NHS 111 service is run by NHS Direct and calls will be answered at their call centre in Dudley, West Midlands
Following on from the PCTs putting the service out to tender, from 1st April (Easter Monday) the out-of-hours GP service will not be provided by North Staffs Urgent Care. Patients will no longer be seen at their premises in Basford or satellite clinics in Norton and Tunstall in the evenings or at weekends.
The new service will be provided by Northern Doctors Urgent Care, operating under the name of Staffordshire Doctors Urgent Care Limited. Northern Doctors Urgent Care is part of the Vocare Group. Their new surgery is based in.Campbell Road, near the Michelin and Britannia Stadium.
Please note that the above changes have been instigated by NHS management not your local General Practitioners.
