Domestic Violence

Domestic abuse is the emotional, physical, financial or sexual abuse of a person by a family member, or their partner, with whom there is or has been an intimate relationship.

Zero tolerance calls for active prevention of domestic violence, adequate provision and appropriate protection. It is not your fault.

NHS 111

Worrying health problems and questions can crop up at any time. Minor cuts or burns, a bad bruise, sports injuries, allergic reactions to bites or stings, nights when your baby won’t stop crying and you can’t work out why, the headache that won’t go away… call 111.

Incidents where you feel you probably don’t need to call out the doctor or go to the Accident and Emergency department and it’s not really a 999 emergency. But you do need someone qualified and experienced to turn to.

NHS 111 will give you immediate information and friendly advice on what to do and what not to do – any time of the night or day.

And of course, if they think you might have something more serious they’ll advise you what to do or connect you to 999 if you need an ambulance.

They’ll also have details of other relevant health information services, and late night pharmacies in your area.

Call 24 hours a day on 111

Calls are charged at local rate.

As in the case of 999 calls, all calls are recorded.

Tell someone: talk to your health visitor, General Practitioner or a friend.
