Your journal needs you

The heart of Community Practitioner is all about you – reflecting your life and work as healthcare professionals. We’re always striving to produce the best journal for you – and here’s where you can help make it even better. We would love to receive your feature ideas, written stories and research papers for future publication.

Perhaps you’ve been working on a research paper you’d love to see published? Or you’re passionate about a subject you’d like to write about? And if you’ve had an experience or insight you feel would make an informative read and you don’t want to write about it yourself – you could simply tell us about it. 

In short, Community Practitioner needs your input! We’re always on the look-out for interesting, incisive and relevant material. Examples of what we’re looking for include:

Research papers – recent topics published in the journal include the increase in childhood obesity, and health visiting in honour-based communities

Standalone features or ideas – stories published recently include how to make the transition from student health visitor to practitioner; improving breastfeeding rates; health professionals and the digital revolution

Feedback – items on professional events and insider information.

If any of these are appealing to you, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. 

Send your research papers, features and ideas to the managing editor, Emma Godfrey-Edwards, at and you could see your work and/or ideas in the pages of the journal.
