The Libraries in North and East have stock of thousands of books across a broad variety of healthcare topics and specialities. These have been carefully selected by our library teams, with recommendations and support from clinical and non-clinical subject matter experts to make sure we are able to offer you the most appropriate and relevant books for your speciality or role.

We also provide access to the collections of other healthcare libraries within our region. Please visit our catalogue to check for title availability.

We also welcome your suggestions for titles that could be purchased. The decision to purchase a copy of a title is reserved to the library teams. Each title is reviewed in line with the Library Collection Development Policy.
