Allied Health Professions

Books | eBooks

The library's collection of print and electronic books cover many topics of interest to allied health professionals. Our collection is constantly updated in line with user recommendations and the release of new editions.

We aim to cover the requirements of all those employed in the trust and so while our collection is primarily clinically focused, we do also offer books on topics ranging from customer care to using MS Office programs. Our 'Reading Well' collection also offers books on healthy lifestyles, stress management and personal effectiveness.
