An improved information catalogue, with enhanced search facilities, has been launched

An improved version of the information catalogue went live recently, following successful demonstrations at the NHS Alliance conference.

The catalogue is the Information Centre's online searchable catalogue of current and proposed national data collections relating to health and social care.

In addition to the enhanced search facilities, the catalogue now includes more than 600 national health and social care data collections.

The catalogue will be a key service over the next year to help improve access to information, and a development programme is being planned.
