 HLG is a UK based network of individuals working in or professionally interested in health and social care information. Our strength is our diverse and active membership covering all health and social sectors, and geographical areas in the UK.    Members work for the health service, the academic sector, the independent sector, government departments, professional associations, charities and public libraries.  Students with an interest in health and social care information are also welcome.  Several HLG members live and work abroad.


We have tried to anticipate the questions you may ask.  If you think we need to add something else please let us know.
