National Office for Policies, Procedures, Protocols and Guidelines (PPPGs)
The Office of the National Framework for PPPGs (Policies, Procedures, Protocols and Guidelines) is a part of the National Health Library and Knowledge Service.
We are currently in the initial phase of creating this space and populating it with guides and resources for the creation and the review of PPPGs. You can view some of the current national PPPG’s on Lenus, the Irish Health Repository, and current COVID-19 related guidance on the COVID-19 Repository.
If you have a national PPPG that is not on Lenus, we ask that you send a PDF copy, together with sign-off from its commissioning authority to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can see a list of national PPPGs that are currently under development here.
If you are aware of a national PPPG being developed or reviewed that is not on this list, please let us know via email@example.com.
A PPPG is a Policy, Procedure, Protocol or Guideline. A PPPG can be clinical or non-clinical.
Instructions can be found in the National PPPG Framework.
Please also fill out the below contact form and we will be in touch.
