It is important to have a good understanding of an LKS network to both inform and support development and to identify any arising problems/issues. 

What Could be Used?

Consider collecting data and evidence from the following sources to understand and provide an overview of the network

  •         Trusts and organisations
  •         Services and Staffing
  •         Funding and funding streams
  •         LQAF assessments – compliancy, good practice and areas of weakness
  •         Impact, innovation and good practice
  •         Benchmarking both across the NHS and other sectors. SCONUL stats can be used to  benchmark against Higher Education
