Our platform wants to centralise resources. Addressing all your needs as a student…

To achieve this we need your help! Please share with us any resources you find useful, and feel other healthcare students should be aware of. Share as many as you possibly can.

Please include a link to the website where the resource can be accessed, and a brief description of why you are recommending we include it in our resource section.
These can be resources for study, or more supportive resources e.g. mindfulmedic.co.uk. But it can also be links to good sites to access cheaper equipment needed as a student e.g. Medisave.co.uk. Or even places that do awesome student discounts… 

In other words share with us all the awesome things you wished were shared with you much earlier than they were!
