What to do if you have a health crisis at Christmas
If your GP is not open then you can call NHS Direct on 111 (England) and 0845 4647 (Wales).
If you are seriously worried about yourself or someone else’s physical health then call 999 or go to your nearest A & E.
You can call The Samaritans at anytime; you do not have to be suicidal. Call them on 116 123.
