Feeling sick and bored, I thought it might be "fun" to try the NHS Direct Self-Diagnosis site. And guess what? After a few (quite sensible) yes/no questions, the diagnosis was

"you probably have a viral infection"

and the first bullet point for advice was

"Drink more fluids"

Gosh. It's spooky. That really is like visiting a GP. Well, we could save the NHS a lot of money by downsizing/offshoring them.

And for the benefit of thegreenman and addedentry, the site also recommended paracetamol, though admittedly not the gargling (or googling) thereof.

They should combine the NHS thing with this.
