To us it seems as though, all of a sudden, there could be hundreds, perhaps thousands, of websites dealing with health care, ranging providing general practice information on general practice matters, through to those functioning to provide the highest level of specialist information – brought about, of course, by modern technology, whereby it doesn’t matter if a doctor with the information we need is thousands of kilometres away, on the other side of the world. It’s the same as if he or she was in room next door.
As an example of what’s available on the internet is this – https://agerrtc.washington.edu
To us, this appears to provide so much valuable information on aging – putting it at our finger tips.
The bottom line is that, if we have a problem with our health, there are a whole lot of options available. Not just the normal, making an appointment with a GP, physically attending on him or her, being referred to a specialist, if need be, if your problem is outside the GPs expertise and making an appointment to physically see the specialist and so on and so on.
