What is Onecall?
Onecall brings together adult social care and healthcare staff from the trust with Northumberland County Council staff from children’s services, and partners in Northumbria Police. Our priority is providing help at the earliest opportunity before the situation becomes more serious.
When do I use it?
Onecall aims to help the most vulnerable people to keep safe and well 24 -7.
For example if you need help with:
- Living safely and independently at home
- Looking after someone who is ill or disabled
- Caring for a child or young person
- Family support if you are concerned about a child or young person
- Reporting abuse or neglect of a child or adult
- Finding alternatives if you can’t live at home
- Recovering from an illness or injury at home
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.
