The online, interactive Medical Directors’ Bulletin provides regular news, information for NHS medical directors. There are also links to other resources, to support you in delivering client-focused, evidence-based high quality care.

The monthly Medical Directors’ Bulletin, with many in-depth articles and interviews, together with a summary of the news, is still also available to download as a hard copy, if you prefer.

You can also comment on stories and contribute to discussions with your colleagues across the country.

News is published on the homepage as it happens, so why not add www.mdbulletin.dh.gov.uk to your favourites or bookmarks and check in regularly so you don’t miss anything.

Or you can sign up for RSS feeds and receive alerts when new stories are added. Just click on the RSS icon on the right.

You can also access the mobile version of the Bulletin from your smartphone www.mdbulletin.dh.gov.uk.

If you prefer reading a hard copy of the Bulletin, you can download the print friendly PDF from each Bulletin contents page.
