Our services

The library and knowledge service offers a wide variety of services to help you find the information you need to support best practice. To access all of these services you need to register with us by completing and returning a Membership Form. If you work in primary health care or public health see what services and resources are available to support you from the left hand menu options.

You will also need to register for an OpenAthens account to access e-resources. Resources are then accessible via a Trust computer or from any computer connected to the internet.
