How to find 'relevant' medical information on Google

Googling is wonderful !!!

Google offers access to millions of libraries at the touch of a button. But the internet is huge / massive and contains all sorts of information; highly scientific, state of the art, to totally irrelevant and sometimes even incorrect misguiding information.

The www.nhs.uk link is one of the best links for general medical information

You may find the OPEN ACCESS articles/resources authored by me useful .....
