Need Urgent Help or Support?

Getting Help and Support

If you are distressed or experiencing feelings of despair - get help now.

If you or anyone else is in immediate danger or harm then please call the Police or Ambulance Service on 999.

Do you need Urgent Medical or Mental Health help?

If you do then it is crucial that you contact the right person and that is most likely to be your GP. They will know where to get you the specialist help you need.

If your GP surgery is closed their answerphone will direct you to the right place or you can call NHS 24 by dialling 111

Use the NHS 24 service if you urgently need medical help or advice but it is not a life threatening situation.
