Health-related government reports are often known by a colloquial name, such as the name of the author or committee chair, but are published under a different official title. This can make them difficult to locate. For example, the publication known as the Pennington Report is published as Report on the circumstances leading to the 1996 outbreak of infection with E. Coli 0157 in central Scotland, the implications for food safety and the lessons to be learned.
The librarians at Liverpool John Moores University have produced a very helpful webpage listing both unofficial and official names for health-related goverment reports.
Their webpage also gives the Command Paper number, which can be used to find the full text of the publication. Recent Command Papers (published after May 2005) are available online on the TSO’s Official Documents website and many Command Papers are available on paper in the library.
UWS students and staff – please do not hesitate to contact the library if you cannot locate the report you are looking for.
