About us

The NHS East Dorset Library & Knowledge Service operates from two hub libraries based at Royal Bournemouth and Poole Hospitals.

Our aim is to ensure that NHS bodies, their staff, learners, patients and the public use the right knowledge and evidence, at the right time, in the right place, enabling high quality decision-making, learning, research and innovation to achieve excellent healthcare and health improvement.

For more information on location, opening hours, facilities and services please see the HLISD entry or the  NHS East Dorset Library & Knowledge Service Guide.

This website provides an opportunity for all NHS staff and students in the East Dorset area to keep updated with the latest news from their local NHS library service about services, training events, and tips on using health information resources.

Alison Day, Lead Librarian

 Photo of Alison DayI have responsibility for managing the NHS East Dorset Library & Knowledge Service  – which includes planning the service, managing the budget and monitoring our performance.  I also try and fit in some regular librarian duties like literature searching, evaluating resources, promotion of the service and training NHS staff to make best use of the resources available.

I am usually based at Poole Hospital Library but make regular visits to the library at the Royal Bournemouth Hospital and attend meetings or make presentations about the service to any NHS staff in their workplace – acute Trust or the Community.  You can contact me via e-mail alison.day@poole.nhs.uk
