Clinical Knowledge Summaries

Connecting for Health (CfH) has announced that it has awarded a new contract for the supply of Clinical Knowledge Summaries (CKS) to a consortium.

The previous contract with BMJ Publishing to provide Clinical Evidence expired at the end of September 2006. Clinical Evidence will remain accessible, free of charge, until 31st December 2006 once a registration process in complete. From 2007 a paid subscription will be required to gain access.

The new contract involves the Department of Health holding the intellectual property rights to content generated during the contract. This will mean that upon contract expiry the NHS will still be able to access content generated during the period of the contract, unlike the current situation with Clinical Evidence.

Action: Clinical Evidence is a useful and concise resource. Registration is worthwhile to allow continued access until the end of 2006.
