We describe People Connect and Community websites, tools available to all health and social care staff in through ‘The Knowledge Network’. Using People Connect and Community websites both as separate digital entities or using them together, staff can build relationships and communities with practitioners from health, social services in local authorities, independent and voluntary sectors. To show how People Connect can be used in conjunction with community websites to enable Communities of Practice to support and improve the integration between health and social care staff, we conducted an analysis of current usage of People Connect with Communities of Practice and how they support staff from health and social care to share ideas and work together to solve problems.
