About Knowlex

Knowlex (short for ‘knowledge exchange’) is regarded as a trusted and valued resource for healthcare professionals. The NHS is at a crossroads, with unprecedented constraints on finance and resources and a seemingly continual growth of demand. Indeed, there appears a rocky road ahead in light of an ageing population demographic and demand for 24/7 access to treatment. Knowlex provides access to all healthcare provider and commissioning organisations (for example acute trusts, CCGs, community health, mental health, and local authorities) to a platform that provides a series of activities and documents that allow those at the coalface to become more knowledgeable and, therefore, more capable of delivering efficient and effective outcomes both for the public purse and more importantly patients. Our offering is no longer just a domestic venture within the UK, as we now also collaborate with international colleagues from countries, such as the USA, Canada and the Middle East, who have joined our community.
