NHS Inform

Scotland's health information service

NHS inform provides a co-ordinated, single source of quality assured health and care information for the people of Scotland.


You no longer need to look in lots of different places for health information.

One source of information

In a world where there is so much information, it's reassuring to know there's a place where you can find out what you need to know about health matters. It's even more reassuring to know that it's from NHS Scotland. NHS inform is a new health information service designed to give you access to the information you need, when you need it. You can find it online at https://www.nhsinform.scot/ or over the phone on 0800 22 44 88 (8am-10pm).
