We are a specialist library service within Leeds Community Healthcare NHS Trust. We have a small library at White Rose Park, but support staff wherever they are based so you do not have to visit the library to use our services. The best way to contact us is via firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are “more than just books” and can help you access relevant up-to-date information to support your day-to-day work, research, and professional development. Staff benefit from the full range of services and resources offered by Leeds Libraries for Health, as well as the specific services highlighted on this page.
How can we support you?
- Support and training in finding information and research evidence
