Virtual library service

Due to COVID-19 and staff redeployment, our library service is mostly online-only

  • Please email us with any questions / queries that you have:
  • The library space at CGH is available for staff to use 24/7. For the door code, please email us from your NHS email account
  • The library space at GRH is now staffed 10am - 3pm, Monday-Friday. If you have a library access fob, you can continue using the space outside of these hours.
  • We are still able to conduct literature searches, find articles and provide search / critical appraisal help virtually.
  • If your enquiry is urgent, please state this in your email. We try to meet all deadlines within reason.
  • All books currently on loan have been renewed.

Thank you for your patience, and apologies for any inconvenience caused.
