Your Health: Web Watch.

MORE than 5,000 pages of health information are available on this new website hosted by the Sunday Mirror's Dr Mark Porter.

It includes an electronic version of the NHS Home Healthcare Guide, the first e-guide to operations, and a section explaining all you need to know about prescription drugs.

There is also the chance to have a cyber- chat with Dr Porter about your health worries.

And if you have just moved home and want to know where to find your local hospital, doctor's surgery, dentist or optician, just tap in your postcode and you will be shown their location on a map of your area.

The website also offers the first daily health-related weather forecast.

Research has shown possible links between weather and asthma, thrombosis, migraine, allergies, Seasonally Affected Disorder, strokes, hyperventilation and heart attacks.
