NHS Services

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

You can find information about hospitals, GPs and dentists, and urgent care. As well as basic contact details, 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 Alzheimer's through to weight loss.

My Health London

My Health London is an award-winning information website for health services in London. We believe that information about health services should be available to all Londoners and the fastest and most convenient way to do this is by making it available online.

Transparency of information is about the public sector being honest about the data it provides and making it accessible. Patients can access information and make comparisons to decide which service is right for them.
