NHS Service Finder

NHS Service Finder is a free to use national product for staff employed by a health or social care provider. 

About NHS Service Finder

NHS Service Finder gives health and care professionals a fast way to access accurate, real-time information to help signpost patients to available services. 

This information includes non-public telephone numbers and instructions about who is eligible for services and how to refer a patient. Maps and directions to the services are also available, and you can email service information directly to your patient.

You can access it from any device with an internet connection, using an up-to-date browser.

How it works

NHS Service Finder retrieves service information from the UEC DoS, the Urgent and Emergency Care Directory of Services and the NHS website. This resource is maintained by regional teams who ensure the information is accurate and up-to-date.

A small amount of extra information is needed for services to appear in your searches. The extent to which regional teams have completed this work will determine what results you see when you search.
