Focus Articles

Focus is a regular college publication forming part of College News available online and in print. The aim is to provide succinct topical information around important issues for clinical practice. The articles are commissioned for the College and prepared by renowned experts in the field. We hope we can build on our past successes to make Focus an important point of reference for all College members and would welcome any feedback regarding past articles and suggestions for future topics or authors.
