Public Health Resource Centre

Since March, we have been working hard in the background to get all aspects of our service back up and running. We are now in a position to recommence the loaning of resources, the provision of leaflets and posters, and the return of borrowed items, albeit in a slightly different way.

Please see the following webpage for further details.

The PHRC is a Leeds-based library for professionals.  If your enquiry is not relevant to our work, we will try to direct you to a suitable website. You can find Leeds-based Coronavirus (COVID-19) information and help at You can find national Coronavirus (COVID-19) information and help at

CLOSED: Public Health Resource Centre

Due to the current situation with Coronavirus, and in line with advice from Central Government and Leeds City Council, we have taken the decision to close the Public Health Resource Centre until further notice.  This means you will not be able to visit the centre to borrow or return resources. We ask that you hold on to borrowed items and we will extend the loan time to cover this period of closure.  If you have reserved any resources, we will be in touch. 


You can still contact us via voicemail, email and social media.
