I have gathered together many information ‘feeds’. These postings will be updated automatically each 24 hours or so, with the most recent from each society towards the top. It means that you should have current information, and each visit here should be a new experience for you.

Click on the title of the post to open the full article in its original site.

Whilst I cannot personally endorse the blog content, the important thing here is that you should take away from the page the information that is of most interest to you! You will find that my own blog has information that I have created specially for my osteopathic private patients. The footer of each page of my site is well worth visiting, because it provides clickable access to the many different articles that I have curated on my Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Scoop.It sites.
