The Department of Health has announced the launch of NHS Choices, a new website that "empowers the public to make informed choices about their own health, including when and where they receive treatment".
This resource is also intended to be used by voluntary sector workers, patient advocates and carers as a source in information for patients who do not have access to the Internet. The site provides information on healthy living, a wide range of conditions and treatments and provides a directory of NHS services.
Action: NHS Choices will be a useful source of information that clinicians can direct patients to and it may be direct use to clinicians.
