Professor Roger Allen is one of the founding members of doc2doc which is a professional networking community for healthcare specialists worldwide.
Doc2doc is an independent, secure medium of communication aiming to improve the working lives of doctors and other healthcare professionals, and the healthcare of their patients. doc2doc is a place where healthcare professionals can meet and talk about their clinical and non-clinical interests on discussion forums, blogs, or through direct contact with other members. doc2doc can be used to organise hospital events, create study groups, get in touch with old colleagues, and find new colleagues to collaborate with. There are blogs, clinical forums, off duty (travel, books, cycling etc) forums, an online journal club, polls, e-books, and much more.
doc2doc is provided by the BMJ Group and run by its community manager, community clinical editor, and editor, all of whom are based at BMJ Group’s London office.
Professor Allen is a regular contributor to the forum under the pen name of Odysseus.
