The Esk Valley Lifeline Charity contributes to the well being of people in the Esk Valley on the North Yorkshire Moors and came into being in 1985 following the need for a heart machine at Danby Surgery. The fund was origininally set up in memory of Mr Goulding and was named the Heart Machine Fund. The original target was to raise £2000 but local people were so generous that this amount was exceeded and so the Esk Valley Lifeline was born.

OUT OF HOURS SERVICE . IF YOU REQUIRE MEDICAL HELP BETWEEN 6.30PM AND 8.00AM, WHEN THE SURGERY IS CLOSED YOU WILL BE ASKED TO DIAL 111
WHAT IS IT?
When you call 111, a trained adviser will ask you questions to find out what’s wrong, give you medical advice and direct you to someone who can help you, like an out-of-hour doctor or a community nurse.
If the adviser thinks your condition is more serious, they will direct you to hospital or send an ambulance. If you don’t speak English, tell the adviser what language you want to speak and they will get you an interpreter.
The call is free, from landlines and mobiles.
WHEN DO I USE IT
You should only call 999 in an emergency – for example, when someone’s life is at risk or someone is seriously injured or critically ill.
Call 111 if you need medical help fast, but it’s not life-threatening.
For health needs that are not urgent, you should call the GP in their normal opening hours.
