Mid and South Essex Healthcare Libraries

Mid and South Essex Healthcare Libraries

Our purpose is to support the practice of evidence based care within the Trust and ensure that all staff have access to the resources they need which will result in the best possible care and experience for our patients. 

We are here for every member of MSE staff including all students on placement. 

Mid and South Essex Foundation Trust has 3 library services located at Basildon, Broomfield  and  Southend. At Basildon and Southend, the libraries are in the Education Centres. At Broomfield it is in a self-contained building behind the Medical Academic Unit.

Our library teams include professional, qualified librarians with many years’ experience of working in healthcare who are supported by knowledgeable and responsive library assistants and information officers.

We support evidence-based care, research, education, and your personal  and professional development in a number of ways:

At the moment our Staffed hours vary slightly due to COVID-19 restrictions but all sites provide you with 24-hour library access.

So, how can you join the library?

  • In person – Come to the library which is most convenient for you and fill out a paper membership form. 
     
  • On the paper forms, there is the option to join up to KnowledgeShare. This service provides customised email bulletins, delivering high quality information on your chosen topics, straight to your inbox. KnowledgeShare is optional.
     
  • We hope soon to have one website where you can find all the resources and services available to MSE Healthcare Library users. In the meantime you can find resources and join on-line at these sites.

When you join you will be given a leaflet outlining in slightly more detail what you need to know. Don’t forget you can always find  out more information by coming in to see us or by linking to our online sites.
