Health information & advice

There is a lot of information on the internet regarding diagnosis and management of many conditions. There are also many support groups and forums.

Whilst the internet can act as an incredibly important tool in this regard, we would urge caution in that some sites may not present accurate information. As such we would recommend the following places to start as validated, accurate and NHS-approved sites that have information on a wide range of conditions. They also link to official charities & support groups for various conditions.

www.patient.co.uk

www.nhs.uk

The above sites contain helpful advice for self-management of common self-limiting conditions such as coughs and colds, gastroenteritis (tummy bugs) etc meaning you don’t have to see a doctor. They also contain useful information and support for people with more serious long term conditions such as diabetes, COPD and heart disease.
