Over 30,000 have joined Scotland’s Service Directory (SSD) this year as a convenient way to find support services for health and wellbeing at their fingertips.

SSD has been developed by NHS 24 in association with Macmillan Cancer Support and health and care charity The Alliance.

The online directory offers contact details for local, quality-assured, health and care services across all regions in Scotland. Every Health and Social Care Partnership has a number of services listed.

Scotland’s Service Directory is available on https://www.nhsinform.scot/scotlands-service-directory providing easy access on a wide range of health and wellbeing groups and services, including how to stay active, cancer services, dementia support, social activities for mental health, and money advice. NHS services are also listed.

A national campaign promoting the directory will run over summer.
