exclamation-mark-blackIf you, or someone you know has concerns about their immediate health, and you or they are already registered with one of our services, then please use the following contact methods to get the help you need:

Adult Community Integrated Services

Adult Mental Health Services

Children, Young People and Families Community Integrated Services

Older People’s Mental Health Services

Accident & Emergency (A&E)

Always call 999 if someone is seriously ill or injured, and their life is at risk.

Urgent help or advice

Patients seeking urgent or emergency medical help or advice in non-life threatening situations should contact the NHS 111 service.

You should call 111 if:

  • You need medical help fast but it’s not a 999 emergency
  • You think you need to go to A&E or need another NHS urgent care service
  • You don’t know who to call or you don’t have a GP to call
  • You need health information or reassurance about what to do next.

The 111 number is free to call from all landlines and mobiles. For less urgent health needs, contact your GP or local pharmacist in the usual way.
