Make-over of the Library facilities at West Cumberland Hospital
The Library has upgraded its facilities with funding from HEE to create a more welcoming, comfortable and COVID safe environment for staff and students to study and relax away from their normal work area. There are 8 computers with Internet and small breakout areas for discussion/ quiet study and laptop work areas. Out of hours access is available on request.
The Library & Knowledge Services also has a brand new staff website. It is now easier than ever before to access our clinical evidence resources using our new ‘google’ style Library-ONE search. For more information please visit: www.library.ncumbria.nhs.uk
In December we launched a new Library resource of the month feature. This month it is the Royal Marsden Manual of Clinical and Cancer Nursing Procedures
New ---- Access was recently extended to include all primary care staff in North Cumbria along with those working for North Cumbria Integrated Care NHS FT.
- You can access from home, go to www.rmmonline.co.uk and log in with your OpenAthens account*
- A new video guide shows you how to navigate the manual and quickly find the information you need watch it here
- Using the manual can also help you with reflective practice as part of your nursing revalidation/CPD and daily practice
