Report of a Nat. Review of NHS Health Library Services in England: From Knowledge to Health in the 21st Century

This Review has highlighted the centrality of library, knowledge and information services within the NHS and describes four key purposes for library and knowledge service:

1. Clinical decision making by patients, their carers as appropriate, and health professional
2. Commissioning decision and health policy making
3. Research
4. Lifelong learning by health professionals.

The Report makes detailed recommendations to strengthen library/knowledge services so that they are fit for purpose for the future, and as efficient and effective as possible in making a positive impact on the health of patients and the population. A number of technical issues and implications are raised.
