People affected by domestic violence are still able to get support and advice at Basildon Hospital - despite access restrictions put in place during the COVID-19 emergency.
Two staff from the Essex Domestic Abuse Partnership Project are on-site 9am-5pm, Monday to Friday.
They see people referred by A&E clinicians or other staff. They also provide support and advice to those who arrive at the hospital after experiencing psychological or emotional domestic abuse.
Outside those hours people experiencing, or at risk of, any form of domestic violence can call the 24-hour helpline at COMPASS: 0330 333 7 444
