If you are self-isolating or need extra help, a single phone number is available for anyone in Somerset who needs coronavirus-related support from their councils. The 0300 790 6275 number is available seven days per week 8am to 6pm.
Anyone who can’t find help within their own local networks and volunteers, can use this number to get help and advice around:
- personal care and support including food and delivery of prescriptions
- support for the homeless
- emotional support if you’re feeling worried or anxious
- transport to medical appointments
- waste collection and disposal
- financial support
This number won’t cover medical advice, for which people will need to continue to use the NHS phone number 111 if they cannot get help online.
