But if you have any other ehealth websites or publications you’d like to recommend why not click on the comments link at the bottom of the blog post and tell us all about them…

British Journal of Healthcare Computing (BJHC)
The BJHC relaunched in January, with a brand new design, structure and focus. The new focus is on the medical benefits of information technology, presented through news, views and the practical experiences of the users of the technology. In March this year, the British Journal of Healthcare Computing joined so2say communications and the HealthTech Wire News Partner Network. This enables it to play a key role in presenting British news, views and experiences in healthcare IT across Europe′s largest online news network for health IT.

E-Health Insider (EHI)
A website with NHS and healthcare IT news and a jobs board dedicated to the recruitment of IT professionals in the UK healthcare sector. Currently campaigning for the development of a new role - chief clinical information officer - to provide clear clinical leadership on IT projects and the use of information in NHS organisations, which it believes will significantly improve the way the NHS harnesses information technology and uses information.

Guardian Healthcare Network / Informatics
