Launch of NHS 111
Herts Urgent Care (HUC) provides NHS 111 and the GP Out Of Hours Service for Hertfordshire - replacing NHS Direct.
These services are for urgent medical problems that cannot wait until the next weekday surgery.
If you are ill, but it is less urgent than 999, please telephone 111 - before you set out from home
Our skilled call handlers will run through a series of questions with you and then direct you to the service best suited to your healthcare needs
All our call handlers are local and have a good knowledge of our local area services
The 111 service is open 24 hours a day, 7 days per week, and ALL calls (including from mobiles) are FREE.
