On 30th March 2017, the new Integrated Urgent Care Service will take over in Bedfordshire and Luton which incorporates NHS 111 and the Out of Hours Service.  The new Service will be run by

Herts Urgent Care.

NHS 111 is available for patients who need medical advice in a non-life threatening situation out of hours.

                                           by telephoning 111

Monday to Friday between 6.30pm-8.00am

and

24 hours during the weekend and on Bank Holidays.

Patients will speak with a Clinical Advisor who will assess the patient, both clinically and socially.  The patient will either be given telephone advice, a face to face appointment or a home visit.
