What NHS Service Finder is
NHS Service Finder gives users access to accurate, real-time information to help signpost patients to available services that best meet their needs. It can be used by health and social care professionals to access the Urgent and Emergency Care Directory of Services (UEC DoS) and nhs.uk service information on any device.
It was developed in collaboration with frontline clinicians and continues to be actively developed with additional features and refinements.
The Directory of Services (DoS) is a central directory that is integrated with NHS Pathways and is automatically accessed if the patient does not require an ambulance or by any attending clinician in the urgent and emergency care services.
