In crisis?

If you currently receive a service from our Trust, then make contact with them as soon as you can.

It may be helpful to refer to your care plan, which should have details of who to contact in an emergency. Or contact your named care co-ordinator (that is the main person who is currently helping you).

If you do not receive any of our services, and are concerned about your physical or mental health or that of someone you care for, your GP should be the first person you contact. Or view our information on what to do in an emergency.

If you are unsure what to do, you can call 111, a 24-hour helpline run by trained professionals.
