NHS Knowledge and Library Services Awareness Week 14 - 18 June

Library and Knowledge Services Awareness Week 2021

From 14 – 18 June we will profile the positive impact of the work undertaken by our own NHS knowledge and library specialists as part of NHS Knowledge and Library Services Awareness Week. Working closely with healthcare staff and learners the team helps drive informed decision making and evidence-based care from board to bedside in all areas of clinical and operational healthcare.

This celebration will launch the Knowledge for Healthcare strategy, Health Education England's ambition is for all NHS staff and learners benefit equally from high-quality knowledge services and for the NHS to optimise the expertise of knowledge and library teams.  

This is an opportunity to shine a light on the benefits that NHS knowledge and library services deliver, working with colleagues in every speciality – there for every member of the NHS.

Taking the ‘heavy lifting’ out of bringing reliable, up to date evidence to healthcare, library teams free up the time of their colleagues. Knowledge specialists and librarians deliver the right information enabling multidisciplinary teams to make informed decisions at the right time, at the point of need.
