Public Health Emergency Contact

Public Health England (PHE) is a Category 1 Responder (Civil Contingencies Act 2004), and provides specialist advice and support to the emergency services and NHS.

Professional use only

Members of the public should contact their own GP, or the free NHS 111 service, for advice on personal or family health issues.

To discuss or obtain advice on a subject on which PHE has expertise out of office hours, and you are unsure of which department to contact, please contact the Emergency Preparedness and Response Switchboard.
