There is a wealth of health and medical information available on the internet, but it can be hard to distinguish between reputable sources of information, and those which are less reliable. This has a profound effect on the relationship between patients and health practitioners, as well as the way in which individuals interpret their own health.
The Patients Association digital platform provides patients with robust, credible and up-to-date health information. The content is written from a patient perspective to be easily understood no matter the level of literacy, and is also available in video and audio versions.
The Patients Association is one of the UK’s oldest and most well-respected health and care charities. It is committed to giving the patient a voice and supporting people to engage fully in their own care.
