Help in a crisis

 

If there is an immediate danger to life, please dial 999 or go to your nearest Accident and Emergency Department.

I am in Gloucestershire

If you or someone you know needs help in a mental health crisis, call our crisis teams.

Call 0800 169 0398.

And choose one of the following options depending on your location:

  • Option 1 for Stroud and Cotswolds
  • Option 2 for Gloucester and Forest

Please note: telephone calls may be recorded. If you do not want that to happen, please tell the person who answers your call and they will phone you back on a ‘non-recordable’ telephone.

The number is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Occasionally, callers may be asked to leave their name and number on an answerphone. In these circumstances, staff will return the call within one hour.

Homeless Healthcare Team

There is a recognised population of homeless people and families across the county who find it difficult to access primary health care because of their circumstances and lifestyle.

Our Homeless Healthcare Team offers permanent registration for those patients with a high level of need, and provides a safe environment for patients who have been removed from GP lists and are registered on the SAS scheme.

We provide a flexible service which enables homeless people to access primary health care.

Our aim is to promote self-care, whilst improving access to mainstream health and social care services, with the ultimate goal of re-integrating people back into mainstream primary health care.
