Patients often ask us where to find reliable information about their symptoms or medical condition
Here are a few reliable NHS approved websites for further information and advice.

PATIENT UK http://patient.info/ This is a valuable resource for patients to browse for more information on symptoms and conditions, with useful links to other organisations such as supporting charities.
NHS CHOICES http://www.nhs.uk/pages/home.aspx
