SUPPORT FOR ALL SURVIVORS 

NHS inform is Scotland's National Health information website.  Users can search for a range of support services, including traditional NHS services such as GPs, Pharmacies and Out of Hours care as well as local health and wellbeing support.  Working in Partnership with various parters from Health and Social Care Partnerships across Scotland, hundreds of local and national support services will be added to the directory over the course of Summer 2017.

As part of a National Project, funded by Macmillan Cancer Support, a new version of the National Services Directory on NHS inform will be available September 2017 which will include a greater depth of support services.

ALISS (A Local Information System for Scotland) is a search tool for general Health and Wellbeing resources and users can be signposted to a range of support.
