According to the results of a recent UK TV Style survey, a growing number of British patients are too embarrassed to see their GP’s (doctors) about things like bowel complaints and other illnesses of a personal nature, preferring to get advice from internet medical websites and treat themselves instead. A spokesman for the British Medical Association stated that this was a dangerous trend as many so-called medical advisers on the internet are not properly qualified. If you are suffering from a serious medical condition, going onto the net is really no substitute for seeing a doctor. I rarely go to the doctor’s surgery, as I’m pretty healthy, however if I had any medical complaints or illnesses, I would definitely see my GP. I would strongly advise any other readers to do the same.
