Health libraries have a big impact on the Trusts that they work with, supporting clinicians and managers to deliver the best possible care and make the best possible decisions, fully apprised of the evidence base behind them.
Health Education England and CILIP (the Chartered Institute of Library & Information Professionals) has recently launched the #amilliondecisions campaign to support the work of NHS library services.
Professor Ian Cumming OBE, Chief Executive, HEE said: “Every day across the healthcare sector more than a million decisions are made which have a profound impact on people’s lives and which influence the quality and cost of healthcare services. The Government and health organisations have obligations under the Health and Social Care Act to ensure the use of evidence from research and to make use of the best available evidence in their decision-making.”
