Ideas Bank for Health Libraries to address the information needs of patients and the public

We have collated examples of best practice from around the regions of how libraries are currently engaging with the public and patients for their health information needs.  We have also had queries from many staff asking for ideas on how they can become involved in this area. Hence our title: “Ideas Bank”.

Here is the **NEW** PDF version of the Ideas Bank (updated May 2017) with links to case studies and  useful websites for further information.
