Dr Foster

I wonder if you all know about this wonderful website? I was reminded recently when asked about where patients could find out about Consultants, hospitals etc. Try Dr Fosters

Claire Rayner, President, Patients' Association says of the site "This is a truly remarkable resource. For the first time, I can find out what I want to know about local health services. It’s the most authoritative measure of healthcare standards available anywhere in the world"

There are also lots of guides for patients and professionals. Free access to all guides for health professionals, much open access for the public, but some areas protected by 'Premium Content' subscription. Just the kind of thing District and Practice nurses will find useful.

We hope to add the site to our Worcestershire Knowledge Portal 'Useful weblinks' listing in the near future.
