Medical Information on the Internet

Please be careful if you use the internet to search for medical information. Anyone can publish anything on the internet, therefore there are many sites written by people who are not qualified to give accurate medical advice. Always check that:

  • the authors and their qualifications are listed (you may wish to conduct further background research on the authors)
  • the website is referring to reliable information
  • the website is regularly updated
  • there is no advertising which might influence the information on the website
  • you are receiving a balanced view; it is best not to rely solely on one website

In addition, it is best to:

  • avoid online consultations or diagnoses
  • check on privacy and confidentiality
  • be aware that websites from outside the UK may mention treatments that are not available within the UK

To make sure that you are provided with the best medical information, please book an appointment at The Walcote Practice where our doctors will be pleased to provide you with accurate and personalised medical advice.
