Official reports from Government departments e.g. the Department of Health, and the Office of Science and Technology can be excellent sources of information. The Bill Bryson Library in Durham has a British Official Publications Collection on Level 2. All UK Acts of Parliament and Command Papers are held here.
A number of sites now give online access to full text reports e.g.
|UKOP - United Kingdom Official Publications||catalogue of all UK government publications with links to full text.|
|Department of Health Publications||most reports are now available online in full text.|
|National Statistics Online||home of official UK statistics.|
|Medical Statistics on the Internet||a useful gateway to health-related statistics produced by the University of Glasgow Library.|
