Patient UK was launched by two GPs ― Dr Tim Kenny and his wife, Dr Beverley Kenny ― in 1996 as a directory of UK websites providing health related information. Following discussions with healthcare software provider EMIS, Tim led a group of medical authors to produce a resource for medical staff and their patients, delivered directly into GP practices.

Use the search facility below to access over 4000 health information leaflets and thousands of discussion forums.


There's also range of Patient Information Leaflets available in the Surgery waiting area.
