PRLog - Oct. 5, 2011 - OXFORD, U.K. -- The news follows the recent launch of two new dedicated Doctors.net.uk ‘insight centres’. The NHS Reforms centre, launched in May this year supports GPs and hospital doctors through the changes proposed in the Health and Social Care Bill. This not only enables doctors to keep abreast of the developments with news stories, useful articles and video interviews but also allows them to upload their own presentations to contribute their point of view and publicise what is happening in their field of practice.
The second launch, of the Cancer Insight Centre, was created to provide better information and services for all doctors involved in the care of patients with cancer. With the support of The Royal Marsden, Cancer Research UK and Roche, it is fast becoming the leading online resource for news, information and research on the most common cancers in the UK.
Dr Tim Ringrose, medical director of Doctors.net.uk, explained: “Doctors are dependent on independent online sources of information to keep abreast of the rapidly changing political landscape and improvements in medical knowledge. Online channels provide the immediacy and collaborative capabilities that traditional methods simply cannot match”
“The fact that 10,000 GPs in the UK are now making use of Doctors.net.uk in a single day demonstrates that doctors are looking for information and support to improve their practice and it bears testament to the value and trust that doctors place in this online professional network.”
Doctors.net.uk also provides services to research and communicate with doctors to a wide range of clients including the pharmaceutical and medical device industry.
