111 First / A&E Emergency Department

How people access parts of emergency care in London is changing 

  • People who need urgent, but not life-threatening, care are being asked to contact NHS 111 before going to A&E. This will reduce waiting times and support social distancing in waiting rooms 
  • 111 First will mean from 1 December all Londoners can have an appointment booked for them at a nearby A&E if it’s needed  
  • General Practice is open as usual for telephone, online, video and face-to-face appointments 

How people access parts of emergency care in London is changing, with ‘111 First’ helping them to get the right care, in the right place, more quickly.   

All Londoners are being asked to contact NHS 111 online or by phone first, before going to a hospital Accident and Emergency department (A&E/ED) if they have an urgent, but not life-threatening, medical need.   

The new arrangements will also help the NHS to better control the risk of coronavirus while space in A&E waiting rooms is reduced to ensure social distancing.
