The Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) Specialist Library, which is a collection of current knowledge and evidence about patient and public involvement in healthcare has been added to the existing NHS National Library for Health.

The new library, which is run by the King's Fund for the National Library for Health, is targeted at NHS managers, researchers and students and provides the latest information on user involvement in policy development and self-care, as well as strengthening NHS accountability to patients and local communities.

The PPI Specialist Library will support the implementation of patient, user, carer and public involvement in health care by providing access, in one location, to the best information available.

Ray Phillips, head of Information Service Development at the King's Fund, said: ìWe are pleased to support the National Library for Health by developing and managing this new Specialist Library. We are sure that managers, carers, and service users will find this an invaluable resource, and that it will assist them in implementing and developing patient and public involvement in their area.î

The PPI Specialist Library can be found at www.library.nhs.uk/ppi
