Press release on the launch of NHS Evidence

from the website about    NHS Evidence:

“Background to NHS Evidence

The creation of NHS Evidence was announced on June 30th 2008 as part of the High Quality Care for All report from Lord Darzi, who stated that: “All NHS Staff will have access to a new NHS Evidence service where they will be able to get, through a single web-based portal, authoritative clinical and non-clinical evidence and best practices.”

The NHS Evidence service

The principle aim of the NHS Evidence service is to provide easy access to a comprehensive evidence base for everyone in health and social care who takes decisions about treatments or the use of resources – including clinicians, public health professionals, commissioners and service managers – thus improving health and patient care. It will build on NICE’s significant international reputation for developing high quality evidence-based guidance. It provides access to a range of information types, including primary research literature, practical implementation tools, guidelines and policy documents.

To achieve the aim stated above, NHS Evidence will:

* Provide comprehensive access to information in health and social care via a web-based portal
* Commission the development of evidence-based information from external agencies, in line with user needs and priorities
* Provide a central purchasing function to enable health professionals in the NHS to access journals and other relevant resources
* Provide a formal accreditation scheme for defined categories of information such as clinical guidelines
* Identify evidence reflecting best practice in particular topic areas to inform a range of user groups
* Engage with users and stakeholders to support the use of evidence in decision-making, and to provide feedback to develop the service”
