SHOUT and PH Crisis Support Text Service

Shout is the UK's first 24/7 text service, free on all major mobile networks, for anyone in crisis anytime, anywhere.

It’s a place to go if you're struggling to cope and you need immediate help.

Practitoner Health have teamed up with SHOUT to create a confidential 24/7 text service for PH patients.

Someone using a phone

If you need support after hours you can text NHSPH to 85258.


Support in an emergency or crisis

NHS PH is not a crisis service. If you are in crisis or feel unsafe or at risk to yourself or others, then you should contact 111/999, your own GP or attend your nearest Emergency Department/A&E as soon as  possible.

The NHS help for suicidal thoughts webpage includes phone and text lines, plus tips for coping in a crisis.

The Samaritans: 0161 236 8000 (local call charges apply) or 116 123 (free to call) can also provide confidential support and are open 24 hours a day.
