The CRAG website currently links to over 400 sites. Although the sites listed cover a wide range of interests, most are health related with a particular focus on clinical effectiveness issues and on health care in Scotland.

National Electronic Library for Health

Todays health news.

 

NHS Clinical Knowledge Summaries (formerly Prodigy) guidance offers advice on the management of conditions and symptoms that are commonly seen in primary care. The guidance is advisory and has been developed to assist healthcare professionals, together with patients, make decisions about the management of the patient's health. It is intended to support discussion and shared decision-making, and is not a substitute for sound clinical judgment or seeking medical advice where appropriate. It is an English based web-system, but we do not have anything that is updated as regularly in Scotland. It is a common favourite with many clinicians.
