Self Help

coldThere is a massive amount of medical and health information on the internet. Much of it is confusing for both patients and health professionals!

Two sites that we recommend for good quality information that is easy to understand are:

  • Patient.info is one of the most trusted medical resources online, supplying evidence based information on a wide range of medical and health topics to patients and health professionals.
  • NHS Choices contains an amazing amount of information presented in a wide variety of ways. It covers not just illnesses and medical conditions but lots of ideas on how to keep well. There is also a section on care and support.

We are keen to help patients improve on self help and hope that the following information will offer some insight into that.

Take a look and see if you can improve your own understanding of your health and well-being! Please encourage others to look here too.

Here is a list of ailments that can be safely self managed. You will see that you can take a look via the hyperlink at the other websites which can offer you further information about managing your condition.
