Dear Member,
NDA (UK) Journal is published annually from the material provided by doctors, their family members and friends in the UK and abroad. Both medical and non medical articles are welcome. Medical articles could be review, original on research/audit or an interesting case. They should be referenced in Vancouver style. Abstracts of presentation at the annual scientific meeting will also be published. Non-medical articles should be interesting, informative, impartial, non-political and if possible linked to Nepal and Nepalese cultural heritage.

Short stories, poems, travel experiences, recipes, anecdotes, etc are considered for inclusion in the journal. Relevant news and achievements in academic and social life of NDA UK members and their families are given ample space. There is also space for readers’ feedback in the form of letters to the editor.

This year there will be an art work competition for the journal. Any age group please  send in artwork (drawing or photo) depicting some aspect of Nepal. The winning entry will be published on the back page.
