'Go to the doctor' warning for Somerset ill
TOO many people in Somerset are putting their health at risk by not visiting their doctor soon enough, according to a new report.
The Information Standard group says two in five people surveyed said they had delayed visiting their GP despite experiencing worrying symptoms.
Ann Robinson, from the group, said: “Our concern is that people are admitting to self-diagnosing and selftreating.
“Unreliable information in these circumstances could then have a detrimental effect on their health.”
