NHS 111 Service
There is a Suffolk-based 24-hour medical helpline, NHS 111, which can offer help, advice and guidance on urgent medical matters. This means that when the GP surgery is closed and it’s not a life-threatening emergency, then they should call NHS 111. Calls are free and will be answered by a trained health advisor. This service will advise on the best course of action and will organise a visit by the out-of-hours GP if needed. For more information on NHS 111 please click here.
Please remember that 999 & A&E are for emergencies only. Otherwise call NHS 111 for help & advice.

An immediate call to 999 and fast action within the first few minutes can give someone the best possible chances of survival, while paramedics are on their way.
