General health enquiries
For general health enquiries dial 111 – this has replaced NHS Direct as the single number to call for urgent non-emergency advice.
Residents can, if they wish, still contact their GP or local pharmacist for care advice. The NHS 111 service does not replace the emergency 999 service.
The “Stay Alive” App is a helpful way to manage suicidal thoughts. It provides useful information and tools to help you stay safe in crisis. You can use it if you are having thoughts of suicide or if you are concerned about someone else who may be considering suicide. Available on all smart phones.
