Launch of MY staff research repository! 

As part of NHS Health Education England's Knowvember campaign we've recently launched a MY Staff Research repository. The repository contains research publications, written wholly or in part by MY Staff, and sits amongst our library catalogue.

So far we've added over 100 publications to our catalogue, but we'd love to add more ! If you're a member of Trust staff and you've published research (from 2012 onwards) please let us know so we can add it to the repository.

Non medical prescribers bulletin

The bulletin aims to provide health information to support non-medical prescribers in evidence based practice and professional development to enable best patient care and decision making

CILIP and Health Education England (HEE) are campaigning for decisions in the healthcare sector to be fully evidence-based, calling on government and health service providers to employ and make use of the skills of librarians and knowledge specialists in meeting their obligations under The Health and Social Care Act 2012.
