Looking after your health and getting the most from life

Know Who To Turn To

NHS Grampian has created a website to help you get the right medical assistance when you're ill, injured or have a long term condition.

Going directly to the person with the appropriate skills is important. This can help you to a speedier recovery and makes sure all NHS services are run efficiently.

A handy booklet is available to help you ‘know who to turn to’ when you're ill, injured or have a long term condition. You can pick one up from your local GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Alternatively you can download the booklet from this website following the link to documents in the Document slot on this page.

Going into Hospital

Going into hospital can be a worrying time. To help you prepare, NHS Grampian provides information for inpatients, outpatients and visitors on what to pack, parking, what to expect on arrival at the hospital and on the ward.

Home From Hospital

If you have been in hospital, perhaps because you have had an operation or you have had a period of poor health, you may need some temporary help when it is time to return home.

This could be practical help with getting in and out of bed, washing or dressing, or preparing a hot meal until you are back on your feet.
