A practitioner will decide if someone needs support in the community
When a person needs help, they should call 111, contact their GP or the council’s access service or they will be referred by another health and care practitioner. The community response will coordinate and ensure a response is provided by the most appropriate service.
If you are a member of the public and need help you should call 111, contact your GP or the council’s access service.
If you are a colleague looking to refer someone you can find detailed guidance and access links on your organisation’s intranet.
