#AMillionDecisions

Every day across the healthcare sector in England more than a million decisions are made that have a profound and lasting impact on people’s lives and which influence the quality of healthcare delivered and the cost of services.

#AMillionDecisions is a campaign being headed by CILIP and Health Education England which calls on government and health service providers to make use of the skills of librarians and knowledge specialists n meeting their obligations under The Health and Social Care Act 2012.

“Under the Health and Social Care Act 2012, there is a responsibility for health services to make best use of evidence obtained from research.”

Patient Health Information Page

As part of their patient and public information remit, health libraries are trying to engage more with customers outside the healthcare workforce. As part of our role in this we have created a dedicated patient health information page on our website.

patient-health-information

The page has been created to signpost patients and the public towards reliable online health information. We also aim to raise awareness about local/national organisations which exist to provide support and advice for those with health enquiries or issues.

This page will be regularly updated so please keep checking back for our updates.
