Emergency help

Ways to get help quickly

We are a primary care service and are therefore not able to deal with crisis situations.

If either you or someone close to you is having thoughts of harming themselves or others and you need to speak to someone urgently, please use the following numbers:

  • Samaritans: 116 123 (National)
  • NHS Direct: 111
  • Or call your GP and make an urgent appointment to see them. If they are closed an automated message will direct you to the Out of Hours GP

Alternatively click on www.nhs.uk/livewell/mentalhealth/pages/helplines.aspx for a directory of helplines.
