Need Urgent Help or Support?

If you are distressed or experiencing despair, try to speak to somebody now.

  • Is there a family member or a friend you could call?
  • Is there a neighbour or colleague who can help?
  • Can you make an emergency appointment with your GP?

If you or anyone else is in immediate danger or harm, then please call the Police or Ambulance Service on 999, or go to your nearest Accident and Emergency (A&E) unit.

Do you need medical or mental health help now?

If so, then it is crucial that you contact the right person - most likely your GP. They will help you to get specialist help. If your GP surgery is closed, their answerphone will direct you to the right place.

Call NHS 111 if you need medical help or advice that is not life-threatening.
