The new service will combine the NHS 111 and  GP Out-of-Hours services currently being provided under separate contracts.

The new service, which is due to go live on 1 April 2019, will incorporate the new national requirements and many of the suggested improvements following the recent public survey and engagement programme. 

The new service has been shaped by the feedback we received from local people and stakeholders and includes a series of improvements that were suggested by people who shared their views as part of our engagement programme. 

Further details will be released upon successful award of tender, which is expected to be in August 2018.
