Keeping Up To Date

The Knowledge & Library service can help you keep up to date with news and changes in your field – from bulletins on different topics to alerts letting you know when new articles appear in your favourite journals or new books arrive in a number of specialties.

What is it?

KnowledgeShare is an online system providing targeted updates on your professional interests. It searches for high impact articles and documents in your area, and sends them to you in a regular bulletin by email.

Why use it?

It gives you the latest high-level evidence in your field.

How does it work?

We create a KnowledgeShare profile for you and it will be as broad or as specific as you need. For example, you could receive everything published on obstetrics or limit your interests to items related to gestational diabetes, or any of a whole range of other topics – as many or as few as you like.

How do I sign up?

To sign up for KnowledgeShare or any of the bulletins on this page, please complete the online form.

Alternatively, email us and tell us which bulletin/s you’d like to subscribe to.


These bulletins collate key evidence, reports and articles from a wide range of sources, and are regularly e-mailed out to subscribers.

They’re aimed at trust staff and students – be aware that we are unable to answer questions related to them from the general public.

Current topics covered are listed below.

The Big Four – A weekly bulletin containing the titles and abstracts of research papers from BMJ, Lancet, NEJM and JAMA.

A monthly update of articles relating to Quality Improvement.
