Need a microwave for your work area?

Colleagues can request funds from the SFH charity for microwaves and/or fridges for colleague rest areas to store colleagues' food and drink. Please contact to request a form. The charity form can also assist in completing forms. 

Library and Knowledge Service 

The Library and Knowledge Service at King’s Mill Hospital has a Wellbeing area with easy chairs where staff can come and take time out. In addition to the physical space, there is a Health & Wellbeing book collection, including titles on self-help, living with a long-term condition and being a carer whilst working, as well as more general titles on stress management, resilience and mindfulness. There is also a leisure collection containing both fiction and non-fiction titles, DVDs and refreshments. Being a covid-secure area means that you can remove your mask and take a break, providing that social distancing is maintained. For staff at Newark and MCH, we are able to send any books out to you for loan.
