How to get help
If you or someone you know needs support, please fill in this online form and we will contact you. You can complete the form at any time.

If you are someone who has diabetes, a respiratory condition such as asthma, or a cardiovascular disease such as high blood pressure, there is a new NHS South West London website available for you now which offers help and support. Information on the website is available in different community languages such as Arabic, Tamil and Gujarati.
If you have a health concern and do not have COVID-19 related symptoms, the NHS is there for you if you need it, so don’t wait until it gets worse. GPs are offering phone or video appointments to give you advice and reduce the need for you to travel.
If you need mental health support in a crisis, you can call South West London and St George’s 24/7 Mental Health Support Line on 0800 028 8000.
