We all need Reliable, Accurate and trustworthy health information.
You hear and read health advice all the time—from friends, online sources, radio, TV, and more. How do you know what health information you can trust?
Not everything on the internet is accurate, reliable, trustworthy and up to date. Anyone can post information and no-one is responsible for checking accuracy or removing out of date information.
For local support, the library can offer sessions to help you improve your skills in finding good quality, trustworthy sources of health information online.
The NHS website is full of information and advice and aims to help you take control of your health and wellbeing. Please follow the links below for more information:
