Onecall aims to help the most vulnerable people to keep safe and well 24 -7.
For example if you need help with:

•    Reporting abuse or neglect of a child or adult

If you need medical advice and support fast, but it’s not life threatening, call your GP or NHS 111.

You should always call 999 in an emergency, for example when someone’s life is at risk or someone is seriously injured or critically ill.
