Funded by NHS Scotland, NHS Inform ( www.nhsinform.co.uk ) has existed for a number of years now to provide a reliable source of health information to the public. Health information includes; services, opening times, medical conditions, answers to common health questions and so on.
The NHS Inform website is currently being redeveloped and the aim is to launch the new site at the end of 2016. As part of this redevelopment a new Service Directory (SD) is also being collated; it is likely that this will be added to the new NHS Inform in early 2017 rather than at launch.
NHS Grampian is one of the pilot Boards working on the development of the SD. As part of this role we have been asked to consult on the structure of the directory as this will be an important part of the ‘user journey’.
Follow this link to see proposed structures for the SD. There are some questions to guide but you can make other comments though please note that the consultation is on the Service Directory only and not the NHS Inform website as a whole.
Please return your thoughts to myself (see contact details below) by Friday 10th June.
