Help with linking to NHS Choices

NHS Choices welcomes and encourages other websites to link to it. This section provides some simple guidelines on how to link to us.

1. Linking to NHS Choices

To offer users a better experience, consider using descriptive anchor text and linking directly to the relevant NHS Choices article page.

Source code guidance – for reasons of accessibility we recommend that you use titles when creating links. This will enable screenreaders to read out the link to the user. The title will also appear to users when hovering over the link with their mouse, giving additional information of what to expect from the page they are being directed to. Get help with accessibility.

From time to time we may update the URL structure of our website, and unless we agree in writing otherwise, all links should point to
