New 111 Wales Service for Swansea, Neath, Bridgend & Carmarthenshire

111 is the new, completely free way to contact the NHS from landlines and mobiles. The new service is being piloted in the Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board (ABMU) area, which means you can currently only use the service if you are registered with a GP practice in Swansea, Neath Port Talbot or Bridgend, and the Hywel Dda University Health Board area (Carmarthenshire only).

The service is an amalgamation of NHS Direct Wales and the GP out-of-hours service and is currently being piloted in Swansea, Neath Port Talbot and Bridgend and Carmarthenshire. If you live outside these areas or are registered with a GP practice in another county, you won’t be able to ring 111.

The 111 service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and you can use it both for health information and advice and to access urgent care.
