Evidence-based Support during COVID-19 Crisis
Please be aware that any books currently on loan from the CWPT Libraries will be automatically renewed for the usual 4 weeks and will we continue to renew these as needed.
The Library and Knowledge Team is now working remotely. However, we are still available to facilitate literature search (or any information) requests. If there are specific books that you would like to borrow, please email Wendy.Townsend@covwarkpt.nhs.uk and we will endeavour to help.
The physical libraries are still open and we are happy for you to borrow books, please complete the paper Self-issue forms in the library and these will be processed by the library staff when they are next on site.
Equally, we are on hand to continue supporting access to evidence-based resources and maintaining access through OpenAthens, as well fulfilling the majority of journal article requests electronically.
Please email Wendy.townsend@covwarkpt for assistance.

Every day across the healthcare sector in England more than a million decisions are made that have a profound and lasting impact on people’s lives and which influence the quality of healthcare and the cost of services. Librarians and Knowledge Specialists use their expertise to work with healthcare teams to ensure that knowledge and evidence are used effectively to inform these decisions, helping teams to build upon best practice and share know-how, bringing the power for change.
