  • National Library Review, Peter Hill 2008:
    Recommendation 30: Primary Care Trusts must implement the recommendation that health library and knowledge services should be part of core business, but it is for them to decide how best to do this.
    Recommendation 33: Primary Care Trusts will ensure that all their contracts, Local Development Agreements and SLAs refer to the use and application of best available evidence by their commissioned providers.
    WCC launched Dec 2007
  • Needs assessment
    Collaborative
    At a time of World Class Commissioning
  • Current – pages about CCGs, Coalition gvt policies
    Not enough people were contributing – majority of new entries were CL – collaborative aspect not working
  • Need to make sure CCGs etc know we are there and can help, also need to develop tools to support commissioners.
    HEE Library & Knowledge Services Leads Group (LKSL) Service Development Group (formerly SHALL SDG)
    SDG – “provides professional guidance and leadership on service improvement, and the development and implementation of a range of projects and services to ensure the delivery of high quality outcomes that support the core business objectives of the NHS, and the LKSL Group. “
  • Handbook now supported by HEE Library & Knowledge Services Leads Group (LKSL) Service Development Group (formerly SHALL SDG)
    SDG – “provides professional guidance and leadership on service improvement, and the development and implementation of a range of projects and services to ensure the delivery of high quality outcomes that support the core business objectives of the NHS, and the LKSL Group. “
  • Why change the platform?
    No longer a need to have a wiki as the experience of the recent past was that very few actively contributed
    Added functionality eg people being able to subscribe and receive email updates
    More up to date feel
    Ease of use for visitors
    Easier to manage - better editing functions
    Better for search engines
    Option for making the site an nhs.uk site rather than being out of the fold
    We had feedback from one of the questionnaires asking why it wasn't a conventional website
    I think also, as soon as the group at the workshop saw the prototype, they seemed to be enthusiastic about changing over.
