London Kent Surrey and Sussex regional searching guidance for health librarians 2nd edition

There is an updated edition (April 2021) of the open-access London Kent Surrey and Sussex (NHS) regional searching guidance. It is "intended for librarians tasked with searching the evidence on behalf of NHS staff" but most of it would be valuable in other healthcare settings, and indeed as general advice for good searching. The guidance is laid out very clearly in bullet points. As well as the guidance, which includes sections on different types of evidence search (e.g. evidence search for care of a specific patient; for (NHS) commissioning; for study; for a business case) there are sets of links to other useful resources (e.g. training materials, search tools and other search guidance). It is produced by expert staff in Kent, Surrey and Sussex NHS Library and Knowledge Services Searching and Training Forum. Go to
