The service is completely confidential. We do not usually inform your parents or anyone else if you contact one of our Health Advisors. We might inform someone if we were concerned about your safety, but we would usually speak to you first. The privacy of our service users and the safety of their personal information is extremely important to us. Click here to read the service privacy notice for further information.
It's completely free! You can text as often as you like and will not be charged. Please note the service cannot accept picture messages.
We are open Monday-Friday 8am-6pm. We do not operate over the weekend, however you can still text in. We aim to reply to you within one working day and you should get an immediate bounce-back to confirm we've received your text. Texts will not be seen outside of normal working hours.
If you need help before you hear back from us, contact your doctor or 111. In case of an emergency or you need urgent medical assistance, please call 999 immediately.
