Your spotlight on local services

Health Services

This page provides links to some useful sources of information to help you to choose the right NHS service for you.

The NHS website is the online 'front door' to the NHS. It is the country's biggest health website and gives much of the information you need to make choices about your health.

You can enter your post code to find information about hospitals, GPs and dentists and urgent care. As well as basic contact details and information about these services, you can also find feedback from other people about what they think about these services.

It’s not just limited to NHS information. You can also find information about other services in your area (often provided by charities) that can help you with conditions from Alzheimers through to weight loss.

The Care Quality Commission checks all hospitals, dentists, and care services to see if they meet national standards. You can find out what they have to say about these services in your area by visiting their website.
