Searching Medline Plus will also tend to take you to many of the best additional sites for what you want to know.
NHS Choices(www.nhs.uk) THE complete NHS guide and ‘front door’ to the NHS. “It is the country’s biggest health website and gives all the information you need to make choices about your health”.
