We network with other NHS libraries across the region, and the UK, so if you don't find the book you are looking for in our stock, we can request the book from another library through our document supply service.

How to request a book not listed on the catalogue:

They are many ways to request a book: 

  • contact us via email with the title of the book, author and ISBN
  • click below and fill in our book request form
  • go to our Knowledge & Library Hub, sign in at the top yellow banner with your OpenAthens account, then search for the book. When you find it, click on 'Request the item'. Fill in the form and then click on 'Submit'

We are also able to request articles from other NHS libraries through our networks. This service is freely available to staff. If an article is particularly tricky to locate, we may discuss payment, if it is for academic work or for a funded research project.

Students on placement are advised to use their University as a first point of contact for resources and help.
