8:22am Wednesday 11th December 2013 in Echo News
DOCTORS are urging people to dial 111 if they need health advice out of surgery hours.
The NHS number is free to call and allows people to access healthcare for health problems that are not life-threatening.
The line is open all day, every day.
Dr Roger Gardiner, lead clinician for NHS 111 in south Essex, said: “The service is working very well.”
