Healthdata > Introduction

Introduction


Healthdata was a dial-up viewdata service that provided information on health topics for adults and schoolchildren.  With over 1000 pages of rapidly changing data, it was a very useful resource.  It was opened in 1985, and ran until 1992, and was operated and run by Dr Chris Dobson.

It was also available as an offline, paid-subscription, database, also in viewdata format, for the BBC, Nimbus or PC.   We have a copy of this available to view here.

I met Chris Dobson during the initial setup stages of Healthdata. I believe he was running Glynn's Software. As i had hands on work with the setup of the SWAFAX BBs he came down and visited us at the school.
