UHCW Library and Knowledge Services

Welcome to UHCW Library and Knowledge Services

The UHCW Library & Knowledge Service provides a multi-professional, evidence-based service which supports the information requirements of patients, evidence-based healthcare, clinical governance, research, undergraduate and postgraduate education and lifelong learning.

Evidence-based practice is at the heart of everything we do, ensuring that staff and patients can take effective action by having the right knowledge when and where they need it.
