PIF Query

Use the PIF Query service to ask for advice and help on specific challenges

If you have a question about anything related to health information then ask the PIF membership! The PIF Query service is a way for PIF members to tap into the wealth of expertise and experience that the membership body has, and receive helpful answers. It saves our members time and hopefully avoids having to reinvent the wheel.

Asking a PIF Query

If you have a question you would like to ask the membership please email the details to admin@pifonline.org.uk and provide your name, job title, organisation, email address and telephone number.  Your query will be circulated by email to our 600+ members usually within 48 hours.  You will receive responses either via the PIF website or via direct email.  Please note PIF Query is a member-only service.

An example of a PIF Query can be viewed here.

Responding to a PIF Query

We encourage PIF members to use the PIF website to share answers and ideas so all of the membership benefits, so please post your responses via the website if possible.  However, the email address of the person posting the query will also be provided if you feel a more private message would be more appropriate, but please do cc admin@pifonline.org.uk so that we can keep track of responses received. 

Many thanks. I received great solutions following my PIF Query. You have helped me solve a massive problem!!”

I would highly recommend using the PIF Query service. I had really quick and good response from a wide range of third sector organisations from PIF members when I asked if they had Welsh language materials as NHS Wales is working towards achieving national standards next year for public sector organisations to have bilingual websites”
