Healthlink BC

Excellent site for advice about almost everything!

This is a UK web site so spelling may be different and some medicines/treatments not available in Canada and paracetamol is acetaminophen!

Changes are happening in healthcare, we are encouraged to prescribe less, be cautious about investigating etc. Choose Wisely is a movement in 20 countries and approved by all medical colleges in Canada. Have a look at the website for more information:

Healthy Eating

Healthy hearts/preventing strokes

A useful website to determine risks of certain cancers and what you can do to change



Skin conditions/advice

Excellent site from Canadian dermatologists

Based in New Zealand , another excellent site


Foot Health


Stop Smoking

Medical cannabinoids

This a difficult subject as there is a there is a vast amount of misinformation out there.

Everybody knows somebody who has been apparently helped/cured by cannabis of various types but this is merely anecdotal. Unfortunately there is a lot of money to be made and so you have to be very careful where you get your information from.

One of the best websites that I have found is "Toward Optimised Practice", an Alberta website which looks at current medical evidence to make evidenced based guidelines- the best kind!

This is a link to their patient hand out

This is a link to the guideline they produced for doctors- again- evidence based


Blood Donation

We are sometimes asked if we know someones blood type. Occasionally we do if you have had a baby, a major operation or needed a transfusion. We cannot check otherwise. Donating blood is the best way to find out and helps others!

Becoming an organ donor

Donation of your body after death

A question we are occasionally asked. Look at this link for more information, it has all the information you need to make a decision
