Discontinued in 2002. Incorporated into Quality in Primary Care (1479-1072). In an era of unprecedented challenge to the accepted role of service provision and professional practice, there is a need for a focus on indicators of excellence, authoritative debate and innovative ideas. This is what the Journal of Clinical Excellence aims to provide; it is for busy professionals needing to learn from their peers; to apply resources where research and policy dictate; and to meet the highest standards of clinical and cost effectiveness. The journal is also designed to enable examples of best practice and research to be brought to the attention of the wider healthcare community. All articles accepted for publication will be fully reference, peer-reviewed and based on sound clinical evidence. Editorial policy will develop to reflect the changing demands of policy makers, commissioners and providers. The journal enables the professional community to provide an academic response to developments within the National Institute for Clinical Excellence and the Clinical Standards Board, and to the implementation of Health Improvement Plans, Health Action Zones and other policy initiatives. The role and influence of primary care groups, trusts and co-operatives will be of particular interest. All this will be linked to a framework for improving and maintaining a quality service for patient care into the 21st century. In doing so, the Journal of Clinical Excellence will encourage debate on the future of the health service and therefore provide a valuable insight for those commercial interests needing to anticipate change.
