Contact the Department of Health on their London phone number 0207 210 4850 to find your nearest mental health support centre and for enquiries about changes in government legislation which affects NHS healthcare.

The Department of Health is the ministerial arm of the UK government which legislates on NHS healthcare and rules determining public mental health support across the nation. Therefore you should call them on their London telephone number 0207 210 4850 to find your nearest support group and to find out how recent changes in policy will affect your access to mental healthcare. Consequentially if you have complaints about how these legislation changes may lead to poorer support you can call the Health Department via this helpline to lodge a formal appeal. As this is their main general enquiries helpline you can also contact them to complain about your local GP surgery, NHS hospital or dental surgeon. Although you may not be able to speak directly to the Minister of Health the reception advisors will subsequently pass on your concerns.

Phoning the Department of Health on their UK contact number 0207 210 4850 will cost the same as making a standard local-rate call to any other 02 line as well as 01 and 03 helplines. You can phone these numbers for free if you have free inclusive minutes remaining on your landline or mobile contract, but please confirm with your provider prior to calling them if you are uncertain on your call costs. This helpline is open 8:30am-5:30pm Monday-Friday so please do not attempt to phone them on weekends.
