Help in a crisis during Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic

During this COVID-19 pandemic there may be changes in the way some of our services work. Contact the service directly to check how services are being delivered and follow their advice.

Some of our services now offer video consultations. You should speak to your clinician if this is something you would like them to consider. You can find out more about video consultation here.

Visiting: Contact the ward you wish to visit in advance for guidance and instructions for a safe visit. 

If you need help in a mental health crisis during the COVID-19 pandemic outside office hours please contact our crisis team: Help in a crisis

For other medical advice and support contact your GP or visit NHS 111

Only visit your local Emergency Department for serious life-threatening conditions that need immediate medical attention including persistent severe chest pain, loss of consciousness, acute confused state, severe breathlessness, severe blood loss, serious burns or suspected stroke.


Our Outstanding Service Contribution and Recognition Scheme (OSCARS) is an opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the outstanding work of teams and individuals in providing high quality mental health, intellectual disability, substance misuse and community health services.

We recieved 189 nominations for the OSCARS in 2019 and the judges had a very difficult job when selecting the shortlist.

The judging took place on 4 December 2018. The winners were annouced on 28 March 2019 at our awards ceremony at the East Midlands Conference Centre.

Special thanks go to all of our sponsors who helped to make the evening possible, and particularly to our joint headline sponsors Mitie and Cirros and our platinum sponsor Mills and Reeve.

If you would like to see highlights from the evening, head over to our Facebook page or use the hashtag #NottsOSCARS on Twitter.
