On 5th June NHS England published the last two blogs in a series it had been running all week dedicated to people who give up their time free as health and care volunteers.

The blogs have marked Volunteers’ Week celebrations in recognition of the invaluable contributions of people up and down the country. The Week acknowledges and says “thank you” to the millions of people who offer their time, skills and expertise to help and support other people.

Blog watch: The Twitter Journal Club

The Twitter Journal Club is a Twitter-based journal club, who meet fortnightly to discuss & critique a variety of medical papers.  The membership includes doctors, medical students, and anyone else who is interested.  They try to pick papers that are particularly significant and will be relevant to a wide range of people. You can suggest papers at any time here.

Anyone is welcome, including students, with one aim being to provide an chance for medical students to learn by discussing papers with practicing doctors. They also hope it will provide an opportunity for doctors to learn about research in fields outside their own.

How it works

The Twitter Journal Club uses the hashtag ie: #TwitJC but unlike most Twitter users, it does not post any public tweets. To read more about how this works please follow this link which will enable you to discover more.
