All authors must give consent for publication and should also testify that the material submitted has not been published previously and is not under consideration for publication elsewhere.
If tables, illustrations or photographs which have been already published are included, a letter of permission for their re-publication should be obtained from author(s) as well as the editor of the journal where it was previously printed.

The material submitted for publication may be in the form of an Original Article, a Review Article, a Case Report or a Letter to the Editor. Original articles should normally report original research of relevance to clinical medicine and may appear either as papers or as short communications.  Clinical case reports and brief or negative research findings may appear.

Letters should normally not exceed 400 words, have no more than 10 references and be signed by all the authors; preference is given to those that take up points made in contributions published in the journal. Obituaries should be of about 250 words. An article based on dissertation submitted as part of the requirement for a Fellowship of the College can be sent for publication. Editorials are written by invitation.

Each manuscript should include a title page, abstract, text, acknowledgements, references, tables and legends.
