NHS and health professionals

The University of Manchester Library are pleased to offer membership schemes for our North West (NW) NHS and health professional colleagues.

NHS members will be able to use the Library's extensive and varied study spaces, borrow up to 4 items for a semester (unless recalled by another reader) and use the Library's inter-library loan services (via NHS Hospital Libraries). As well as this, members will have access to the Library's copying, scanning and printing facilities and access to a limited range of electronic resources. It should be noted that there is a small charge associated with making inter-library loan requests and using the copying and printing facilities.

NHS NW membership

The University of Manchester Library, in cooperation with the NHS NW Health Care Libraries Unit, provides a membership scheme open to all NHS NW employees free of charge. Applicants are required to provide their NHS employment identity card on applying for membership.

Public Health staff working with the NHS NW are also eligible for membership. Please apply using the form below which must be countersigned by the Director of the Public Health Network. Applicants are required to provide evidence of affiliation to NHS NW on applying for membership.
