This paper describes changes in the use of e-health services over a 5-year period. It compares findings from two large-scale questionnaire studies undertaken in 2000 and 2005. Key changes in usage and trust practices are noted with patients "acting as scientists" using web sites to test out theories regarding their health. Future analyses regarding trust and identity markers are discussed.
