The Library and Knowledge Service is due to be refurbished between the 17th and 24th of February inclusive. The Service will be closed between these dates, and no items will be due back during the weeks beginning 15th February and 22nd February.

Note that you can borrow extra items during this time, which will help the move as it means fewer items of stock will need to be stored and moved.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact Lynda Cotterill, Library Services Manager on 01625 663923 or lynda.cotterill@nhs.net.

Sign up for NHS Change Day 2015!

NHS Change Day

Thanks to NHS IQ website

The countdown has begun to NHS Change Day 2015 on 11 March. It is hoped that Change Day 2015 can surpass both the 189,000 pledges of action made in 2013 and the phenomenal 500,000 made by individuals, teams and whole organisations last year.

Change Day is a grassroots movement for change backed by the NHS but instigated, developed and managed by frontline staff throughout the country.

It began with a single tweet two years ago and since then has grown into a remarkable success story.

Outreach Librarian will be at Eagle Bridge this Thursday!
