Out of hours and emergency calls
Out of hours calls are dealt with by our call handling service. All enquires are logged and passed to relevant teams as soon as possible. Callers should be aware that they are talking to an externally contracted representative and not Cheshire West and Chester Customer Service staff, as a result, they may be required to provide more details than normal.
To contact us in an emergency (between 7pm and 8am Monday to Friday and weekends) please telephone us on 0300 123 7035.
