BACKGROUND: Availability and accessibility of high-quality information is inconsistent nationally and improving information is central to Department of Health policy. This article outlines an information prescription (IP) pilot.

AIM AND METHOD: Using a quality-improvement cycle, feedback was gathered from stakeholders to develop an IP service for people with Parkinson's disease and their relatives/carers.

RESULTS AND DISCUSSION: Generally, service users were satisfied with the information and felt it enabled them to better understand, manage and be in control of their condition. Despite initial concerns, health staff identified benefits to themselves and patients. Barriers to implementing IPs were discussed.
