Your spotlight on local services

Find a service

Our information service can guide you through the health and social care system, tell you what you need to know to make choices, and help you get the best from local services.

Call us on 01706 249 575. If we can't answer your call, please leave a message and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Alternatively you can send us a message through our "Contact Us" form.

Get in touch and we can connect you with services in your local area:

  • NHS services like hospitals, GPs, and dentists
  • social care providers like residential homes, and care services
  • community resources like support groups and advice centres

Care Quality Commission checks all hospitals, dentists, care homes and care services to see if they meet national standards. You can find out what they have to say about these services in your area by visiting their website. Their site also gives information about what you can expect from good care providers, including a series of booklets.

NHS Choices is the online 'front door' to the NHS. It is the country's biggest health website and gives all the information you need to make choices about your health. You can find information about hospitals, GPs and dentists and urgent care. As well as basic contact details, you can also find feedback from other people about what they think about these services.
