Self Help and Reliable Sources Of Information
Many people are keen to understand their own clinical conditions better and are proactive about improving their own health. It can however be difficult to get reliable sources of information from the plethora of websites available to the General Public.
The reference we would recommend to our patients is www.patient.co.uk. Although we cannot verify everything that is available on this website it is a very good starting point for obtaining basic healthcare information and has innumerable links to other good quality health on the web resources.

We also recommend Scottish Health on the Web - www.show.scot.nhs.uk/for information on the NHS in Scotland.
