We have tailored this page to help signpost you to the resources you need, all in one place. If there is anything you would like us to add, contact us and help us improve your page.

We now have access to DynaMed, the popular clinical information resource.
Search clinically-organised summaries for more than 3,400 topics, designed for health care professionals for use at point-of-care.
All evidence is clinically evaluated and integrated into DynaMed's existing content on a daily basis, so that a synthesis of the best evidence is always available.
We have collected the RSS feeds of some top Cardiology journals and news sites and put them all in one place for you to browse at your convenience.
Hosted by Netvibes, your Learning Disabilities current awareness page means you only have to go to one place, rather than visiting each individual website that you are interested in.
If there is a feed that you want us to include, just let us know and we'll add it in.

Table of Contents alerts automatically notify you when a new issue of a journal is published.
