Normal(ish) Service Resumed!


The Library space is open but social distancing must be observed, keeping 2 metres apart at all times.


Library staff are present, Monday to Friday and can deal with your enquiries, but we may not always be present on the enquiry desk. If we are not there, you can find us in the office behind the enquiry desk or in the Librarian's office in the back corridor behind the library. You can contact us by phone on 01284 713112 and if we are unable to take your call, please leave your name and contact details and we will get back to you.  You can also email your enquiries to wsh-tr.library@nhs.net


We are in the process of adapting our inductions and training sessions to online versions so please bear with us as this is a big project! We are happy to offer face to face training subject to room availability and adherence to social distancing guidelines.
