For Urgent Care Call 111 First
Posted on 30 Sep 2020
Your NHS is providing a new, more convenient way for you to access urgent care at Queen Alexandra Hospital in Portsmouth.
If you need urgent medical help and it is not a life-threatening emergency, call 111 as they can book you a time slot at the Emergency Department if you need one.
Your advisor can also direct you to a more appropriate service depending on your needs.
Calling 111 first will help us to maintain social distancing and ensure you receive the right care in the right place, in a more timely way.
If you or someone you know is experiencing a medical emergency, you can still attend the Emergency Department or call 999.
