About

The Child Elf will help health and social care professionals keep up to date with reliable research, policy and guidance. We do this by searching through hundreds of journals, databases and websites for new publications that are evidence-based and relevant to UK health and social care practice.

The website is a collaborative effort and we welcome contributions from individuals or organisations who share our vision for making high quality health information available in a format that works for busy professionals.
