Supanet, the UK’s largest privately owned Internet Service Provider (ISP) has selected, the health website hosted by NHS consultants, to launch its new-look Health Channel

With the additional content from Medicdirect, Supanet will now offer its million strong subscriber base specific information on everything from minor ailments to major operations.

New features include video clips giving a clear indication of the intricacies involved in surgery; a stress test; Dental Clinic; instructions on how to correctly perform a self examination; a virtual body tour; and dedicated illness clinics.

Supanet health editor Allan Knox said: “I think the material Medicdirect offers is particularly useful in bridging the gap between your GP visit and referral to a consultant, as it offers clarification of specialist information as well as support for the whole family.”

Announcing the agreement Medicdirect’s MD Peter Morgan commented: “Having the opportunity to license this content to Supanet, as the UK’s leading privately-owned ISP, represents another important strategic partnership in the evolution of Medicdirect.”
