NHS Scotland SIMD Score

The SIMD option displays the individual patient SIMD score based on the Scottish government's official tool to identify areas of multiple deprivation in Scotland. This identifies patients that may require different levels of care.

To search for a patient's SIMD (Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivations) score, go to their Details tab. Check that their postcode is entered correctly, and click on the magnifying glass next to the SMID Score field.

Once found, the SIMD score stays on patient’s details so you only have to look it up once.
