Other NHS Wales staff

We have a Community membership scheme for NHS Wales staff who aren't employed by Cardiff and Vale UHB, Velindre University NHS Trust or Health Education and Improvement Wales (HEIW).

Through this membership scheme you can:

  • borrow up to six items at any one time from our two week and four week loan collections from any Cardiff University library
  • chat to a member of library staff using our Ask a librarian live online chat service
  • use LibrarySearch to find items in our library catalogue and to access your library account
  • access some eResources via our walk-in access to eResources service using dedicated machines in the health libraries
  • use the photocopying facilities.

You are welcome to visit the University libraries without joining and you will also have reference access to our collections.

If you are a member of an NHS Wales hospital library and wish to borrow a book not held in your library, please ask your home library to obtain the book for you.
