About Us

Our aim is to enable the delivery of evidence based practice patient care through the provision of a high quality and responsive library and information service supporting all staff.

We provide a service to CDDFT staff including those working in the community and students on placement within the Trust. Any NHS staff not employed by the Trust can apply for external membership for a small fee.

Our libraries support you in the work that you do, in your learning and development and any research activities that you may undertake.

We have a Library and Information Service based at both Darlington Memorial Hospital and University Hospital of North Durham.
