Impact case studies help share best practice and learnings from across the NHS.

Health librarians and knowledge specialists, working closely with staff and organisations within the NHS and wider health sector, bring tangible benefits, including:

  • savings in time
  • costs
  • better operational efficiency

Case Studies

Case studies can be used to effectively capture and summarise the outcome of interviews.

The information can be used for advocacy, marketing and promotion of knowledge and library services (KLS).

Examples of our impact

Impact Case Studies database - a collection of good impact case studies submitted by KLSs.

Vignettes showcase impact case studies. Combining visual imagery and text, they highlight the importance of your service and its impact on your organisation and/or the wider NHS.
