Guide to Health Services - Age UK

Primary care services are provided by the National Health Service (NHS) to meet basic health care needs. They are aimed at keeping people healthy and at treating routine injuries and illnesses. Primary care is also referred to as family health services. It is provided in the community, by people you normally see when you first have a health problem. This includes family doctors, community nurses, opticians, dentists, pharmacists and therapists. You can find out where your nearest primary care service is by logging on to NHS Direct at www.nhsdirect.nhs.uk or to NHS Choices at www.nhs.uk NHS Choices provides information on where to find your local hospital, dentist and doctor. It also gives information on common conditions and treatments.
