COVID-19 Library Service


  • 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 8.30am to 5pm and can deal with your enquiries, but whilst we await the installation of protective screens around the enquiry desk we are not able to offer a face to face enquiry service or training. Please email your enquiries to wsh-tr.library@nhs.net


  • We can offer remote, online training via Teams or Zoom, contact the library to set this up.


  • We can reset passwords, help with scanning and load print credit, but as these are face to face tasks we need you to socially distance 2 metres from us whilst we deal with your request.


  • We can still obtain articles and undertake evidence searches, but because we are being redeployed to support crucial Covid Teams we will prioritise their search requests.


  • All loans and renewals have been extended and overdue letters suspended, but if you receive one, ignore it. We do not charge fines for overdue items.


  • If you are using the social area or the study area, please maintain a distance of 2 metres between yourself and others using the space. This is particularly important if you are using the coffee machine which is situated next to the enquiry desk. Please respect our right to protection and the measures we have put in place to protect you.

Thanks for your cooperation.
