Important - Staffing Update: We are currently working with reduced staffing across all staff groups. However we very pleased to assure you that we have three excellent GP's who are helping ensure we continue to deliver safe and effective care for our community.
Care Information Scotland is a telephone and website service providing information about care services for older people living in Scotland. On the Care Information Scotland website you will find information about:
Chat online about any care enquiries. If you would prefer to talk to someone, please call the helpline on 0800 011 3200 Mon to Fri 8am to 10pm and Sat and Sun 9am to 5pm
If English is not your first language, there is a translation service called Language Line which can provide someone to translate between you and the helpline staff member. NHS 24 uses the interpretation service, Language Line, to support callers who cannot, or prefer not to, speak English.
Language Line is private, confidential and free to use.
To use Language Line:
Once you’re connected to an interpreter you’ll have a three way conversation with NHS 24 to explain the problem in your language and get the help you need.
