We do not claim to provide only evidence based information, or be (yet another) set of guidelines. And we do not like algorithms. We do aim to give simple information that is of practical use to health professionals (mainly FY1/2s) at the coalface, with an ill patient in front of them; ie, 'what you actually do'
We would welcome your feedback and ideas. The information on this website is the responsibility of the Editor-in-Chief, and authors, and not the institutions where the authors work or study
