Policy Online Launched
A centralised resource for all our policy material

by Rachel Hallows on 9th July 2019

Policy Online

Policy Online is the new internet site for NHS Lothian policies* and any material directly related to these policies (i.e. procedures, guidelines, forms and charts, patient information leaflets).

Policy Online will:

  • allow you access to a policy from any web-enabled device, at any time, alongside its associated material
  • reduce the time it takes to find what you are looking for, through intuitive search functions, filtering and bookmarking
  • assure that you are using the most up to date and approved policies

Policy Online will not be an advisory service; this will fall under the remit of the Policy Hub team or the departments themselves. Any questions/concerns around developing or approving policy and associated documents will continue to be managed by the Policy Hub or the relevant department approval group.

All department-specific information and details, outwith policy and their associated documents, will remain on the relevant NHSL Intranet sub-site and will continue to be managed by individual teams/departments.

Departments involved include Clinical, Drugs and Therapeutics, Facilities, Health and Safety, Infection Control, Information Governance, Public Protection and more.

* Except for HR policies, Finance policies, IRMER policies and policies reserved for The Board.
