BBC Online News - Health
http://news.bbc.co.uk/hi/english/health/default.htm
BBC Online News is updated around the clock. Covers both UK and World news. As always, bear in mind that news stories should be read not only with interest but also with a measure of 'healthy doubt'.

Reuters Health eLine
http://www.reutershealth.com/
The bulk of Reuter's medical and healthcare information/news services are now subscription only. However, they do provide a small selection of news items on a daily basis at no charge. The usual caveat applies, i.e. the process of interpreting and condensing information for the 'newswire' can lead to distortions. Hence, no medical news item from any source should be taken at face value.

"Reuters Health eLine, a consumer-oriented medical news service, delivers the top clinically relevant healthcare news featuring stories on men, women and children's health, diet, exercise, treatment advances and disease management. This daily news feed of approximately 15 stories per day provides consumers with in-depth medical information that is easy to understand."

"An online hub for physicians and other health care professionals, MedConnect has published medical information since 1994. A group of emergency medicine, primary care, and pediatric physicians recognized the potential of the World Wide Web to encourage communication between colleagues and make educational materials interactive. The first provider of CME on the web, MedConnect has grown to include literature reviews, cases of the month, featured articles, journal clubs, board reviews, free Medline, teaching files with ECGs, x-rays, and CAT scans, and more. This information is presented in separate journals of emergency medicine, pediatrics, managed care, and primary care. Journals in women's health, mental health, geriatrics, and cardiology are in development."
