Joining the Library

The University has an agreement with the NHS to allow its staff who are employed within the North East and North Cumbria to become members of the Library.

To join the Library we need to see verification of your status as a current NHS employee in the region - see Map below for the area covered. You will need to come to the Library to register as we need to take a photograph for your Smartcard. Please ensure that you visit during full desk opening hours to register

Please note - we do not accept ID cards as verification because they are undated.

A recent NHS payslip (from the last 3 months) or a current contract is what is required as verification.

GPs and Dentists who work solely with NHS patients can show official headed practice notepaper giving name of applicant and stating that the practice treats NHS patients.
