Domestic Violence

The Government are launching their ‘codeword’ scheme to make it easier for people to ask for help at the pharmacy or supermarket. ‘Ask for Ani’ encourages people to say the codeword so that they can be taken to a private consultation room or safe place so that they then have the option to call the Police, the National Domestic Abuse Helpline, or a local domestic abuse service. For more information, please click here. 

If you are a victim of domestic violence it can be difficult to come forward.  You can speak to a GP at the practice or we have provided some links below with further support and information.

If you are worried that a friend, neighbour or loved one is a victim of domestic abuse then you can call the freephone, 24-hour National Domestic Abuse Helpline on 0808 2000 247. Click here to view the National Domestic Abuse Helpline's website for more further information.
