Purpose of the LQAF Namespace

Welcome to the LQAF namespace of the LKS in the North Wiki.
This namespace has been created to store copies of the NHS Library Quality Assurance Framework (LQAF) returns.


LQAF Documents and Guidance for 2018

GO TO: LQAF Documents and Guidance to download copies of the SAT, updates to criteria 1.3c and 5.3l and guidance documents to help you complete your LQAF return.

These documents replace all earlier versions.

Staffing calculations for the NW, NE and YH for 2018 will be made available in the Summer for those services wishing to evidence an increase in compliance with 3.1c in their 2018 submission.
Other services may still wish to check their ratios for your own information.


LQAF Good Practice

We will not be adding further good practice examples in 2017 but you will find a range of good examples on the LQAF Good Practice site from LKS in the North who have agreed to share their LQAF submissions in whole or in part.

This includes:

  • 2016 submissions covering most of the core criteria

  • full submissions from 2015 from the NW, NE and Yorkshire & the Humber with HCLU scores and feedback

  • Knowledge Management and Impact examples from 2014.

  • examples of individual criteria from 2013 and 2012.
