A new on-line resource from the National Library for Health – the Vascular Specialist Library – has been launched to provide information for both health care professionals and the general public on the prevention, diagnosis and management of diseases of the arteries, veins and the lymphatic system.
The core content of the Vascular Library includes systematic reviews, National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidelines, health policy initiatives, evaluated patient information, key vascular-related information from general medical and specialist vascular journals and data from national standards, statistics and audits.
