Current Awareness

We have collected the RSS feeds of some top acute medicine journals and news sites and put them all in one place for you to browse at your convenience. 

Hosted by Netvibes,  your Pathology 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 (TOC) Alerts 

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

If you want us to set up a TOC alert for you, just get in touch and we can set up the alert to come straight to your email inbox.

For more information TOC alerts and other ideas on how to keep up to date, see our Current Awareness page.
