We look forward to seeing you next week!
There is a forthcoming generator test scheduled for Friday 12th February between 7.30am and 8.00am.
During this period, please ensure that non-essential equipment is turned off and any work on PCs is continually saved as the switchover from mains electricity to the hospital’s back-up generator will cause interruptions in the supply.
All trust staff have access to a collection of over 200 online journals covering key medical and nursing titles. Our subscription provides full text access to articles published in these journals, giving access to published research and evidence which can support your workplace practice, CPD, research and educational activities.
The journal titles are linked into our healthcare databases, electronic journal lists and can be accessed from the library web pages when both on and offsite by using your Athens log in.
