Our Library team offers a range of training sessions to help you make the best use of the library.
We run a range of training sessions to help staff make the best use of the library. All Library training counts towards CPD hours for nursing revalidation.
Our training is available free of charge to all staff. Individual and small group training can be arranged, tailored to specific staff groups if required - please contact us to discuss your training needs. We can arrange training at a time to suit you if none of the timetabled sessions are convenient.
Please find details of upcoming workshops below. All workshops are also available upon request at a time and date to suit you. We can also arrange bespoke training sessions, so please get in touch to discuss any specific training needs.

How will you use my contact details?
We will use your email address to book you onto the course requested and to issue you with a certificate after the session.
How can I see the data you hold on me?
You may log in to www.knowledgeshare.nhs.uk (using your NHS OpenAthens account) at any time to see the data we hold about you.
How long will we keep your data?
We will keep your data for the length of your library membership which will end when you leave the Trust. We will unassign you from our library service on Knowledgeshare. However, your data will remain on the Knowledgeshare system (for two years) so that you can be reassigned to another library service if you move trusts. We will keep non-identifiable data about library service usage for as long as is necessary to submit statistics to Health Education England and to compile our annual report.
The Library service has a legal basis for processing your data, as we cannot provide the service without the processing mentioned.
Can I ask for my data to be deleted?
Yes, you have the right to ask to be forgotten. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org at any time and ask to be deleted from our system. If you do not have any items on loan, we will delete your account within 7 working days of receiving your request.
If you wish for your Knowledgeshare account to be permanently deleted (rather than unassigned on the system), you can email email@example.com and we will delete your account within 7 working days.
Sharing your data
I agree to my data being held in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 and the General Data Protection Legislation 2018 on the shared NHS library management system to which this library contributes and KnowledgeShare. I understand that my information may be accessible to library staff at other NHS and partner organisations within the shared library management consortium to enable loans of other libraries' materials. I understand that my data will not be shared with any other third party.
You will be contacted by one of the library team to confirm your training booking.
