All comments posted on this site are moderated by me personally. I check the site most days, even when on annual leave.  Internet users posting comments on this blog are, in the main, health professionals.  Please state your position when leaving comments as it helps other users to evaluate the contribution you have made to their  learning.


Comments posted on this Blog should be designed to support, not replace, the relationship that exists between a patient/site visitor and his/her existing physician.  I do not expressly invite comments from non-health professionals but this is an open site and I remind health professionals that their comments can be seen by any member of the public.


We remind you that everyone can read and use your comments. You do not have the possibility to erase your own comments.  Please click here for our privacy policy.


Internet users commenting on my blog must behave with professionalism, respect and honesty at all times.  Please only disseminate information that is true and correct to the best of your knowledge and provide links and references to the evidence-base as far as is possible or state if your comments are based on personal experience.

Internet users may not post any commercial/advertising comment but may provide a link to other websites with a continuing professional development aim.

As the only moderator, I reserve the right to erase, without notification, any comment I judge to be inappropriate.  Please note that you can contact me at the e-mail address at the top of the most recent newsletter.  I will not be offering any medical advice via e-mail; please see your own GP for any personal health concerns or concerns about your child’s health.
