A new website which helps the public access a wide range of information on health and social care services in Glasgow has been launched.
The Glasgow's Health Hub website - www.glasgowshealthhub.org.uk - is an electronic one-stop shop for information on health and related issues affecting the city's residents.
Developed by NHS Greater Glasgow in partnership with Glasgow City Council, the new site acts as a portal to a wide range of selected and evaluated web based health and well-being information.
* Sites with information on local NHS services;
* Information on Council initiatives and services related to health;
* Health related news and events;
* Information for patients and carers;
* Where your local support groups are;
* Information on local voluntary agencies and much more!
The new site is aimed at Glasgow citizens, but anyone can access it. It was officially launched at Shettleston Library and Learning Centre by Tom Divers, Chief Executive of NHS Greater Glasgow, and Glasgow City Council's Councillor Archie Graham, Vice Convenor of Cultural and Leisure Services.
Mr Divers said: "This new website was developed to give Glasgow's citizens easier access to information on the wide range of health and social care services in the city. Instead of trawling the Internet, the public can now obtain the information they need just by visiting the one site. It's a quicker, more simple way of finding out about their local health and social care services."
Councillor Archie Graham said: "The Health Hub website is a valuable, local information source to put Glasgow people in touch with information that will improve their health and well-being."
