NHS website

The NHS website (formerly NHS Choices) was launched in 2007 and is the official website of the National Health Service in England. It provides a comprehensive health information service with thousands of articles, videos and tools, helping you make the best choices about your health and lifestyle, as well as making the most of NHS and social care services in England.

With more than 48 million visits per month, it has become the UK's biggest health website, accounting for a quarter of all health-related web traffic.

The service search helps you find, choose and compare health, support and social care services in England. 

Social media is an important part of the NHS service, reaching up to 3 million people a month via Facebook, Twitter and video channels such as YouTube.

Information on the site is freely available to everyone, and content is syndicated to more than 600 partner websites, including over 200 NHS organisations, Boots, Mumsnet and Microsoft.
