It is the patient ultimately who must make the critical health choices.
NetDoctor.co.uk is committed to help both parties in their quest. It is a cooperation between committed doctors, health care professionals, information specialists and patients who believe that medical practice should be based on quality-assessed information as well as wherever possible on the basis of the principles of evidence-based medicine.
