Library Services

The library aims to offer a comprehensive service, providing information for evidence-based patient care, continuing professional development, education and research.

It houses a multi-disciplinary collection of materials on all aspects of palliative and end-of-life care, including specialist journal titles, books and reports.

There is also a range of resources available for patients and their carers and families. This includes books, leaflets, CDs and DVDs from organisations such as Macmillan, the Department of Health and local charities providing support and practical help.
