The rise of DIY patient communities

Nice video on the rise of social networking and communities led by patients, featuring the US-based CureTogether as a prime example. It’s a patient-led site where you can: “Compare your symptoms, choose treatments and uncover triggers that might be affecting you. Get ideas you can bring to your doctor. Track your progress toward feeling better and connect with others working on the same health issues.” Wonder if there’s anything as empowering as this in the UK?
