Focus and Scope

Clinical audits form an important aspect of the training of junior doctors in the UK today. This journal will form an accessible database and reference area to share audits.

 

 

Almost every clinician in the UK will have participated in audit. However, to date there has been no platform for sharing experiences. The founding members of this website, who are all doctors working within the NHS at various levels, have come together to provide this resource.  

 

The Online Journal of Clinical Audits is registered as a UK company and was set up by its founding directors, Dinkar Bakshi and Nick Prince. Both are NHS Specialty Registrars based in London, UK. We would like to welcome you to our journal and thank you for considering submitting your work for publication with us.

 

Best wishes,

 

Dinkar Bakshi and Nick Prince
