NHS Service Finder Video

February 24, 2021

The NHS Service Finder team has produced a video explaining the benefits the tool for healthcare professionals.

The video is narrated by several NHS Service Finder users including pharmacy dispenser, Sarah Davis.

Key messages in the video for healthcare professionals are:

  • Healthcare professionals should all be aware of NHS Service Finder and how to look-up local organisations.
  • It provides you with the confidence to signpost or send contact details directly to the patient quickly.
  • It is preferable to locally managed lists which become out-of-date and inaccurate.
  • It provides GP practices non-public telephone numbers, for use where this is appropriate.
  • If the patients live far away but need some advice relevant to when they return to their home, NHS Service Finder can equip healthcare professionals with what they need to provide detailed advice to the patients.
  • It saves time of patients and can reduce the chance that they have to use an emergency or out of hours service.
  • It is user-friendly
