Gavel, an evidence-based medicine publication written specifically for primary care, is based on a comprehensive search of the world's literature. Each issue summarises the clinically important research findings that influence therapeutic choice.

By evaluating benefits from a primary care viewpoint and with an understanding of budgetary limitations, we hope to offer a balanced, practical interpretation of the evidence base in key therapeutic areas.

The content is critically assessed prior to publication by an independent advisory panel, chaired by Dr Andrew Moore, Editor of Bandolier. The remit of the panel is to ensure that Gavel remains accurate, honest and objective, and retains its relevance to general practice.
