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 http://www.sconul.ac.uk/sites/default/files/documents/SCONUL%20Statistical%20Return%2014-15.pdf
