Description:

The NHS is the National Health Service for England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. On this site they note that, "Since its launch in 1948...[it] has grown to become the world's largest publicly funded health service. It is also one of the most efficient, most egalitarian, and most comprehensive." Their website provides informative video and audio files that address everything from "Asthma: an animation" to "Self-harm" to the "Seasonal Flu." Both videos and audio files can be shared, and the videos can be added to one's website. Visitors will find that the "Tools" featured in the tab next to the "Video" and "Audio" tabs, on the homepage, include such tools as "Depression self-assessment test," a "Downloadable quit smoking widget," and a "Birth-to-five development timeline." The quit smoking widget gives 30 days of support to those trying to quit, and includes a calculator that tells how much money the quitter is saving, and how long they have been smoke-free.
