Latest News & Current Awareness

We can provide you with personally tailored Current Awareness Bulletins. These ensure you are up to date in evidence-based research in any topic of your choosing, including the latest systematic reviews and other articles, updated NICE guidance, and any practice changing research. We currently provide a number of these bulletins for departments and individuals throughout the hospital. 

We also publish a 'Big Four Bulletin' covering the latest articles and news of interest from the BMJ, Lancet, JAMA, and the New England Journal of Medicine. Please contact if you would like us to arrange these bulletins for you.


Bulletins by Department

These bulletins provide an overview of the latest evidence in each of the fields covered. We try and bring together the most relevant publications from a variety of sources, but make no claim to have included all possible material.

The bulletins are the property of the Library, University Hospitals Bristol NHS Trust. If you would like to distribute them beyond the Trust, please ask us first by emailing
