CKO Support


What is a CKO?

The concept of the Chief Knowledge Officer (CKO) was introduced in "Report of a National Review of NHS Health Library Services in England: From knowledge to health in the 21st Century"  produced by Professor Peter Hill and published on 3 March 2008.

Role specifications for Chief Knowledge Officer[download pdf copy] and Team Knowledge Officer [download pdf copy] are also available together with a document that explains the context of these two roles. [download a pdf copy]
