Hidden info

If a heading appears to be empty, it may still have extra hidden information. Click on the heading, and if there is more to see, the new information will appear underneath.

For all headings like this, your cursor will change into the pointer finger when your mouse is over it.

Connect icons

There are various connection icons for Networks and personal connections used throughout the site. If you're not sure what they mean, hold your mouse still over them, and you'll get a small "tooltip" telling you want the icon stands for.


If you have a particular interest in commissioning, there's a special Zone within NHS Networks called the Commissioning Zone, which contains hundreds of documents and links relevant to all aspects of commissioning, along with a special search for finding information from within the Zone.
