Top 20 healthcare Twitterers
We took some time to collate a list of UK healthcare Twitter profiles, to find the most informative and engaging thought-leaders and information services out there.
If you don’t use Twitter yet, but you’re thinking about setting up an account – even if just to listen in on the underground news – then a good place to start would be to follow the accounts on this list and then gradually build up your list as time goes on, tuning in to topics you’re interested in and people you know.
All these Twitter profiles are aimed at healthcare professionals, we hope you find it useful.
Please do follow us on Twitter too – tell us what you think of this list with hashtag #top20healthcare @interweavecare
