NHS24 Has a New Number: 111

Please note that NHS 24’s new number has changed to 111. For more information you can read the quoted information below, or get more information from the NHS 24 website.

From 29th April, people across Scotland will be able to access NHS 24 out of hours care and information by calling 111.

Why change the number?

The change is a result of patient feedback. We were aware that some callers found the old number difficult to remember while others were unsure of how much their call would cost.

We decided to address these concerns by introducing a new easy to remember number that is free to call.

Will anything else change?

No, NHS 24 will continue to provide the same range of out of hours care and information to callers across Scotland.

How will it benefit me?

The new number will ensure that people across Scotland can access the service, whether via a landline or mobile phone free of charge, using a number that is short and easy to remember.

What about the old number?

Don’t worry if you call the old number (08454 24 24 24) by accident, as this will still be active for a limited period. The old number will eventually be phased out in due course.

For more information on contacting NHS 24 please read our leaflet: If it can’t wait until your GP surgery reopens (PDF 339KB).

Alternatives to calling

If you are looking for advice on treating common health problems why not consult our self help guide? You may find an answer to your question here without having to call us.

More detailed health and care information can be found on our sister site NHS inform.

Have you had a problem with a DLA application?

Please contact the practice if you have had a DLA application rejected with the reason ‘doctor is reluctant to complete a report‘. This is a mistake made by the DLA and they have aplogised. We are not reluctant to complete DLA forms and if you think you have been affected by this error please contact the practice.

Information on Strike Day 21st June 2012

On 21 June 2012 there is to be a day of industrial action by doctors represented by the BMA. The doctors at the Barony Practidce support the action, but do not wish to disadvantage patients. The practice will be open as normal, but there will be no advance appointments and only urgent or emergency conditions will be dealt with. The doctors support this action as they feel doctors as a whole are being unfairly treated. For more information please phone the surgery on 0141 889 3732, or see the open letter also published in UK newpapers below. Continue reading
