Experience of Care Week

Experience of Care Week is an international initiative to celebrate the work that is happening across health and social care to keep improving experiences of care for patients, families, carers and staff.

Experience of Care Week runs from the 25th to the 29th April 2022, and to celebrate the library will have displays with posters, books and useful information available at both sites.

Our librarians have put together a guide with links to useful journal articles about patient experience which is available to download - Experience of care week materials or you can pick up a paper copy from the library.

Become a leadership master with our masterclass reading lists!

The SaTH Leadership Academy is running a series of Leadership Masterclasses (more details available on the Leadership Development page on the SaTH Intranet).

We're putting together a range of resource lists to support these, and the lists so far are:

Each list contains a selection of relevant books and e-books available to borrow or view online.

These lists will develop over time as we add new titles to our leadership collections in both libraries, and we'll also be adding new topics. All the lists can be found on the Course Reserves page on the library catalogue.

We have a wide range of leadership books available in our libraries in the dedicated Leadership Zones, and we also have many more e-books you can access with an NHS OpenAthens account, as well as thousands of articles. In addition, we can carry out evidence searches to support service development, policy development, knowledge management and other management and leadership needs.

 

 

 

 

Making borrowing even easier!

We’ve recently introduced automatic renewals on our books, with 5 auto-renewals for 28 day loans, and 10 auto-renewals for 14 day loans.

This means that unless the book is reserved by someone else, or has come from another library, you won't need to worry about forgetting to renew your loans as we'll do it for you.

We’ll still send reminders about what you have out on loan, and we'll let you know if we’re unable to auto-renew your books for any reason.

This is something we've been asked about for some time, and thankfully due a library system upgrade we've been able to introduce it. If you have other comments on library services, or if there are services or resources you'd like to see, you can fill out our library survey until the end of January and be in with a chance to win a £20 book token. You can also contact us at any time with feedback or suggestions.
