NHS Libraries and Patient / Public Information

The Patient and Public Information Task and Finish Group have collated examples of best practice from around the regions of how libraries are engaging with the public for their health information needs. As well as being part of K4HC  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 for Health Libraries.

In order to make the document more meaningful we have grouped the ideas under themes.

We have also put together a Useful links for Public and Patient Information Provision to help generate ideas.

During the first half of 2016 we envisage producing some further guidance for NHS libraries so watch this space .

The PPI group can be followed on Twitter @K4H_PPI and we will be adding resources to the Consumer Health Information pages of the LKS website.
