Which Joint Top Health Website - November 2010
In November 2010 the UK's leading independent consumer organisation Which? asked three GPs to investigate the quality of health advice online. The GPs spent four days on seven of the most-visited health sites during August of that year.
The criteria against how each GP assessed each category was drawn up with the help of a practising GP and members of the Which? Computing and Which? Policy teams.
The GPs examined the quality of the information across five key criteria: the depth of medical information on the condition; the accuracy of that medical information; how easy that information was to follow and understand; the tone of delivery; and further links.
Patient.co.uk (then Patient UK) gained joint top position in this investigation, receiving an overall 88% score.
