Journals and Databases

“Requesting a journal article, the service provided by the library at Wansbeck is better than I used to receive from the library at a central London teaching hospital.”

“I have gained a vast amount of knowledge from the papers, articles and books that have been useful in applied research, as well as teaching/disseminating information to others within the Trust.”
