The Library space at Cheddon Lodge is not currently available due to planned maintenance, and staff shortages.

We are currently running with limited staffing onsite, this may impact on some of our services in the following ways:

  • There may be delays in responding to your emails or queries.
  • The library space may be unstaffed at short notice (service updates will be provided via the library website and our Twitter account).
  • Requests for books and articles from other libraries may be delayed as many other NHS libraries in the region also have staff shortages or are currently closed.
  • We may need to negotiate deadlines for literature search requests.
  • We cannot currently take requests for assisted searches to support academic work, please contact your academic institution’s library services for assistance.
  • You may be offered library inductions or training via MS Teams, or redirected to self-directed learning on OWL.

Thank you for your understanding.

For further service updates, please check the library website and our Twitter account.
