About us


There are libraries for acute and community staff at Hexham, North Tyneside, Northumbria and Wansbeck hospitals. We can deal with any enquiry in person, on the phone or by email.  All the libraries are staffed Monday-Friday, but you can use our resources at any time through this website.  And if you would like to visit the libraries in the evenings or at weekends, please contact us
Email: library@nhct.nhs.uk


Our Customer Charter aims to protect the health and safety of our staff and users. All Trust libraries have been risk-assessed as Covid-secure places and safety measures have been introduced to welcome staff into our Libraries during the pandemic.


We are working partly on site and partly at home at the moment. All the libraries should be staffed at least 09:00-16:30.
