Interlibrary loans/document supply

If we don’t have the item you require in stock we can request it from another library (service for registered borrowers, undertaking NHS work. Registration forms are available here).

  • We can obtain some items from other NHS libraries at no charge to you
  • We can obtain items from the British Library at a cost
  • Same day service (additional charges may apply- contact library to check)

Article request and book request forms are available on the guides and forms tab.

 

Literature searching support

If you require assistance with a literature search on a specific subject, staff are available to help. In the current challenging situation we have reduced our physical library presence but are supporting an increased remote service. Please email the library with details and we will be happy to arrange the best way to support your searching needs.

Guides on how to search the NHS Healthcare databases are available here.

 

Library Training

Links to guides on how to use library resources are available on the Guides and forms page here.

We cannot currently offer face to face training, but can provide remote sessions. Email library.mailbox@nhs.net if you are interested.

We can arrange bespoke search training for departmental/practice, education and research groups wishing to focus on a specific topic or an overview of library resources for your specific needs.
