Searching for information safely

The internet can be an excellent source of information but how do you know which websites you can trust? Which have evidence behind them to support their information?

There is a huge number of unreliable websites which just given their opinion (which often has no proof ) rather than evidence-based information.

We recommend that if you are looking for something health-related then use the NHS site below first and foremost, and type whatever you are looking for into their SEARCH. It has a huge wealth of excellent information which you can trust, because it is written by health care professionals within the NHS, and all the information has evidence to support it.
