HSE Helplines Christmas Hours

HSE provide both the Drugs and Alcohol Helpline and the HIV and Sexual Health Helpline services. Both are accessible through the Freephone number 1800 459 459 and the email support : helpline@hse.ie

Our regular opening hours are Mondays to Fridays, 9.30am to 5.30pm. Over Christmas we close on Christmas Day, St Stephens Day and New Years Day.

We circulate our hours at this time of year, so that you can post then on your website, facebook page or on your out-of-hours phone message over the break, so that service users will know that we can offer support to them by phone or email over the holidays. Helplines Christmas opening hours:
