Welcome to the brand new NHS Lanarkshire website.
The new site replaces the previous public website and offers a wide range of improvements.
NHS Lanarkshire communication manager Calvin Brown said: "Annually the website receives more than nine million hits. That's around half a million visits by 180,000 unique visitors – and that is growing.
"The new site will allow us to offer users quick and easy access to the information they want. It also has a new healthy living section with inspiration and advice to help them improve their health. It includes stopping smoking, alcohol, hand hygiene and healthy eating with top tips and links to local services and further advice.”
The site also has a new service finder, based on Google Maps, which allows you to search for health services near you.
Other new features include an improved publications section and a revamped news section that allows users sign up for a regular eNewsletter.
The site makes the most of latest web features such as social bookmarking and live news feeds using really simple syndication (RSS).
NHS Lanarkshire's communications department worked with staff, public partnership forum members, cancer service users, NHSL staff, the Disability Engagement Group to produce the new look site.
The launch is just the beginning and a website steering group will be established to oversee the site’s development.
