Commentary magazine

Commentary is the membership magazine of the RCP, delivering authoritative insight and opinion across a diverse range of subjects – including political developments in the health sector and medical history.

The 32-page magazine is published bimonthly and mailed worldwide to fellows and members alongside Clinical Medicine and Future Hospital Journal. Each issue is also available online.

In the latest issue:

  • Brexit: where do we go from here? – seven expert authors discuss four of the most important areas to focus on as Britain prepares to leave the EU.  
  • Building capacity in East Africa – a new training programme to improve treatment for neurological conditions and cancer.
  • Reporting for the court advice from a law professor on how to act as an expert medical witness.
  • Anywhere in the world – looking at the working lives of repatriation doctors: the perks, the challenges, and how to combine the role with working in the UK.
  • The healing arts – a look at the many styles of arts programmes helping patients on the road to recovery. 
  • 50 years of Clinical Medicine – half a century after its first issue, a member of the editorial board reviews the first issue.
