Joined Up Care Derbyshire (JUCD) Public and Patient Insight Library Relaunch

The JUCD Public and Patient Insight Library, created following the outbreak of Covid-19, has been revamped. A central hub for collating and storing patient and public insight gathered across Derbyshire health, care, statutory and voluntary organisations the library is open to a wide variety of professionals to help inform decision-making.

The system was identified as a solution to help facilitate a more collaborative way of working amongst organisations working within the Integrated Care System and provides a simple and user-friendly way to identify and share reports on people’s experience of local health and care services.

Whilst initially focused on people’s experiences of Covid-19 and how services were responding to the pandemic, the library has been updated to reflect the current local health and care sector. It is being relaunched with new reports containing insight into people’s experiences of health and cares across a wide variety of services.

All reports entered in the library are tagged so that they can be sorted by theme, service type, district, and a number of other categories. It is now easier than ever to submit reports to be added to the library via an online form.

The library has been recognised nationally by NHS England with a workspace template created and available for use by other Integrated Care Systems across the country based on the JUCD Public and Patient Insight Library.

If you are already a member of the Futures NHS Platform you can request to join the workspace. If not and you would like access to this system contact the NHS Derby and Derbyshire Engagement Team at
