  9. The first report from the NHS Hip Fracture Anaesthesia Network was published in Anaesthesia, the journal of the Association of Anaesthetists of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. “Without the network this would not have happened. The findings in the study should help to change practice in the UK.” Richard Griffiths, network lead and consultant anaesthetist, Peterborough & Stamford Hospitals, Peterborough, UK

  10. “If it wasn't for NHS Networks we wouldn't have a network website. We just couldn’t afford it. The new site is ideal as it's quick and easy to upload your own content, particularly helpful after conferences when I used to spend ages zipping and shrinking files to email and even then they'd fail. This saves time and expense for all of us.” Paul Midgley Network co-ordinator East Midlands PBC Network

  11. “NHS Networks provides the means to increase the profile and role of networks as well as firmly embedding them within the fabric of the NHS. This is a truly powerful tool that can assist health economies to coordinate development work across stakeholders, share good practice and learn from others on a national level”. Paul Devlin Emergency Care Network
