About Medinfo

Medinfo is being developed with the aim of providing free and easy to understand medical information and advice, such as you might get from your own doctor, on a number of common and not so common conditions.

Medinfo is written by a British general practitioner, however this is general advice and does not take into account your own individual circumstances. We hope that you will find the information helpful, but it does not replace your doctor, and if you are concerned or worried, you should refer to him or her. Please read the disclaimer before using the information on this web site.

Please let us know what you think about this site and help to guide future development by completing the brief feedback at the end of medical pages, answering the Medinfo questionnaire, or contacting the webmaster with your comments.

If you have visited the site before you may like to see what's new. We also run a Medinfo announcements mailing list so you can keep up to date with Medinfo developments.
