New guides on NHS Information Standard

The Patient and Public Information Task & Finish Groups have published a new guide in partnership with NHS England and The Information Standard (TIS).

The guide has been produced to increase awareness and confidence around the standards required when producing and commissioning health information.

It presents the 6 principles of The Information Standard and gives examples of how some library and knowledge services are already supporting production or commissioning of health information in their organisations.

The guide is not intended to help you and your organisation apply for The Information Standard. It is about highlighting examples of good practice which are already in place across the NHS.

Additional resources to support best practice around health information are also available via The Information Standard website.
