The library is very happy to support all Journal Clubs at BCHC. We can help you with setting up a new club, support existing clubs and we offer critical appraisal or evidence based training for members.

We also have a particular interest in learning what format of journal club works best for you and your team.  With this in mind, we have prepared a database recording details of all the existing journal clubs in the Trusts.  Please contact us if your club is not included in the database or if the information is not correct.
