Hampshire Constabulary’s Direct Access Line

The Police have set up a new service called the Direct Access Line for vulnerable callers for non-emergency calls.

The caller can register on line or by post.

the police will then send them a welcome pack with the phone number to use and everything they need to know.

Their details will be stored in police systems on a personal record.

The calls will come in directly to the police using a Direct Dial Number which by-passes all the menu options and then the telephone display screen will show it as a "direct access line" call so that the call taker can deal with the caller in the best way.

NHS SouthamptonCity Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG)

This body is responsible for commissioning (planning and buying) a wide range of local health services for people living in Southampton.
Every GP practice in the city is a member of the CCG and they have elected six local doctors to represent them on the Governing Body of the CCG. Doctors and healthcare professionals bring extensive clinical knowledge to the planning of health services and this should mean better outcomes for patients. Family doctors (GPs) are also well placed to understand what services patients need as nearly all patients go to their GP before accessing any health services. GPs will ensure that we develop strong and productive partnerships, particularly with local hospital doctors and others who provide clinical services
