EVIDENCE-BASED MEDICAL ADVICE FROM NETDOCTOR.CO.UK JOINS KWICKEE BITESIZE

17th May 2004 - Kwickee Guides Ltd, publishers of Kwickee Bitesize, has today announced UK leading independent health website NetDoctor.co.uk is to place Bitesize guides covering a range of medical conditions.

Kwickee Bitesize, the mobile phone content platform, is host to a wealth of information (articles, reviews, reports, training, sales messages etc) written by professionals, the public and marketers and will be available to a UK market of over 30 million people towards the end of June.

Julian Fisher, Publisher. "Kwickee Bitesize provides ‘information-at-the-point-of-need’ to a personal device, the mobile phone, which is considered as one of the most essential day-to-day possessions. And there is nothing more personal than health issues which is why we are delighted to be joined by the leading medical advice website service, NetDoctor.co.uk."

NetDoctor.co.uk is a collaboration between committed doctors, health care professionals, information specialists and patients who believe that medical practice should be based on quality-assessed information and, wherever possible, on the basis of the principles of evidence-based medicine. Over 250 of the UK's and Europe's leading doctors and health professionals write, edit and update the contents of NetDoctor.co.uk.

Alex Ballantyne CEO, commented, "Our aim has been to break down the medical language barrier between doctor and patient. Critical medical information must be presented in a manner that allows the patient to fully understand his or her choices and decisions. Ultimately, it is the patient who must make critical health choices."

He continued, "We believe that in the future the world of medicine will be dominated by a new patient who seeks out critical information via his computer or mobile phone. Providing our medical content in Bitesize guides is a step towards achieving that goal in support of our comprehensive website of over 6,000 pages."
