The healthcare industry is flooded with content these days, making it difficult to know which content streams to regularly revisit for the latest news and articles. But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Here are five healthcare blogs we believe you should be reading:
The Health Foundation
This leading source offers content covering health care improvement, quality, sustainability and population health. As well as comments and opinions from staff, they also welcome contributions from other healthcare professionals. Tending to post 3-4 articles each week, it’s a must read.

Be Healthy Now
Away from day-to-day healthcare, this blog offers something for everyone – it’s a fantastic healthy lifestyle blog. A subject close to our hearts here at Marsh Farmer, this blog covers natural health, healthy recipes, fitness and general healthy living. The blog is run by Petra, originally from Slovenia but now living in England, who strongly believes in a holistic approach to health. It’s not only about healthy eating, exercise and nutrition. It’s also about natural living, avoiding everyday toxins, choosing organic where possible, avoiding pollution where possible. It’s about stress management and a healthy mind as well.

The King’s Fund
Full disclosure on this one – we love this blog! The content is fantastic, written by leading healthcare professionals with first-hand knowledge and experience of their topic. Articles cover a wide spectrum including patients, people, society, finance, leadership and healthcare services. The articles often utilise powerful industry statistics – plus helpfully highlight how long each article will take to read prior to clicking.

National Elf Service
You’ve likely already heard of this one – a hugely popular blog within the industry. The National Elf Service is owned and managed by Minervation Ltd, an Oxford University spin-out company founded by information scientists Douglas Badenoch and André Tomlin. Douglas and André share a vision for making evidence-based research more accessible and usable for busy health and social care professionals.
