If you are experiencing any of the following, please contact the surgery on 01395 232509 and ask to speak to a doctor.

  • Harming yourself
  • Thinking about harming yourself
  • Worried about your injuries – you can be at risk of infections from small cuts and burns

The doctor will listen to what you have been going through and will talk to you about advice and treatment options to move forwards.

It is important to get help as people who self-harm are at a higher risk of suicide. Getting support as soon as possible can help prevent suicidal thoughts occurring.
