Priority Services Register

Links to their Priority Services Register (PSR) can be found on the websites of all utility providers.

Eligible residents (e.g. those with restricted mobility, deaf, blind, disabled, long term illness etc.) can register on the Priority Services Registers operated by their utility companies. If there is a major incident or problem, those who have registered should be offered extra information and practical support. When this current situation has eased, customers who are on the PSR will continue to receive extra assistance and support.
