Last Thursday I attended a networking day for NHS Librarians in the West Midlands. There was a presentation on the forthcoming Health Education England Framework for Library and Knowledge Services, which will affect all our work. Elaine Watson from Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust presented KnowledgeShare a combined user database for current awareness, training and literature searches. This may be something to investigate further. Alison Turner and Kieran Lamb from Midlands and Lancashire and NW Commissioning Support Units talked about their experience of meeting the information needs of commissioners. There is demand for a quality product, but not much funding available. The day was also a good opportunity to network with colleagues from across the region.
