Patient UK is a website which aims to provide non-medical people in the UK with good quality information about health and disease. The authors do this by writing evidence based information leaflets on a wide range of medical and health topics. They also review health and illness related websites and link to many of these from the web directory included on the Patient UK website. UK sites are the primary links in the web directory as they feel that residents in the UK prefer to obtain health information from UK sources. They also suggest some links to selected overseas sites.
Health professionals and people from outside the UK may also find Patient UK a useful resource. The PatientPlus section is likely to be of particular interest to health professionals.
