According to the BBC News website:

An online database that will allow NHS staff to share information has been unveiled by Health Secretary Nicola Sturgeon.

The Knowledge Network will include a "Google-style" search engine with access to a huge bank of educational resources as well as personal space for employees to gather information.

The network will be managed by NHS Education for Scotland (NES).

It aims to save staff time and bring online resources together in one place.

The Scottish government said the resource did not include access to patients' records but was designed to support the information needs of the health and social care workforce.

The network website includes community spaces in areas as diverse as psychiatry, bereavement, community care, ethics and general practice.
