The NHS website is the public website for health and the NHS in England. It provides a comprehensive health information service that puts you in control of your healthcare.
The website helps you make choices about your health, from decisions about your lifestyle, such as smoking, drinking and exercise, to finding and using NHS services in England.
The NHS website includes around 20,000 regularly updated articles. There are also hundreds of thousands of entries in more than 50 directories that you can use to find and choose health services in England.
It draws together the knowledge and expertise of:
- NHS Evidence, formerly the National Library for Health
- the Information Centre for Health and Social Care
- the Care Quality Commission (CQC)
- many other health and social care organisations
Along with articles and reports, the site offers hundreds of videos, interactive tools and listings that allow you to compare services, such as hospitals, GPs or dentists.
You can also create your own private account and have content personalised for you on the NHS website.
