Information on how to use the National Health Service in Scotland is available at NHS Inform.   The website includes information about family doctors (GPs), dentists, opticians, pharmacists, and out of hours services.  Information is available in 17 languages.

The Scottish Government has also produced a "Welcome Pack for New Scots" with information about services and living in Scotland. 

There are also several youtube videos about using NHS services in Scotland. 

The information sheets below have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS). They cover issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.

Special care has been taken to ensure that information is given in clear language, and the content and style has been tested with user groups. 

We have also attached NHS Scotland "Know Who To Turn To" poster which helps you know where to go for help. 

You can also book an interpreter to contact any health care service including emergency 999 calls. Links are below and also at NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde webpage
