NHS Library and Knowledge Service Essential Sites List

NHS Library and Knowledge Services (LKS) maintain a list of secure and legitimate health and care knowledge and education websites which NHS Trusts are encouraged not to block. From October 2018, the list is being kept up-to-date by North West based LKS staff Kathryn Graham and Helen Kiely.

Following the national survey, the name of The White List has been changed to the NHS Library and Knowledge Service Essential Sites List – or the Essential Sites List for short. If you identify a legitimate website domain which is being blocked by NHS firewalls, please send details to the team via essentialsites@libraryservices.nhs.uk

The latest version of the NHS Library and Knowledge Service Essential Sites List (updated April 2019) is available as an Excel file.

The team have drafted a template letter for LKS staff to use to circulate the list to their IT or Network teams.

To suggest a site for addition to the list please send us the details here
