NHS services are currently extremely busy, as they continue to see a rise in demand across all health services. There are also rising numbers of healthcare staff who are off work with COVID-19. Together this means health services are working extremely hard to continue to provide the best possible care for those who need NHS help.
Over the Bank Holiday weekend, the NHS is asking the public to ‘help us help you’ if you need help and support.
If you need mental health support over the Bank Holiday, the Sussex Mental Healthline offers crisis care for people in urgent need of help with their mental health. It is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week on 0800 0309 500.
