Health News of the Day

Health News of the Day is a daily summary made from the selected links I post on Twitter. It is in a bullet points format with links to the original sources which include 350 RSS feeds that produce about 2,500 items per day.

  • Britons complain endlessly about the National Health Service but get a bit touchy when outsiders are the critics.

  • Do patients really need their complete lab and radiology reports? - I think so. Dr. Rob and KevinMD seem to disagree.
