This week (14 – 18 June) is NHS Knowledge and Library Services Awareness Week. Working closely with healthcare staff and learners your Library team helps drive informed decision making and evidence-based care from board to bedside in all areas of clinical and operational healthcare. For more information about the role of Libraries, go to https://library.nhs.uk/our-work/nhs-knowledge-and-library-services-awareness-week/
This celebration will launch the Knowledge for Healthcare strategy https://www.hee.nhs.uk/our-work/knowledge-for-healthcare. 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.
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.
To celebrate this week, we're giving you the chance to win: A day at Branston Golf & Country Club (first prize); Clarins skincare kits (second prize), and some suntan lotion (3rd prize). Just complete the quiz at https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/DTU8JL/ The quiz focuses on the e-resources provided by the Library, and a new national wellbeing resource. Good luck!
