What’s happening in Bolton for Health Information Week 2021?

Bolton College LRC will be running with the various themes for the week and posting on their InstagramFacebook and Twitter pages along with their blog.

Bolton Foundation Trust Library Services have a themed digital campaign in line with the national Health Education England directive:

•             themed displays in the library promoted via social media

•             promotion of digital point of care tools to support evidence based practice for patient care

•            emphasis on digital patient information leaflets to support patient centred decision making and self-management for long term health and wellbeing.

Bolton Libraries and Museum Services are keeping it virtual this year too, plus having book displays in all the branches and promoting health eBooks and eMagazines on Borrowbox and Libby through their Facebook and Twitter pages. They’ll be one day in the week focussed on health information for children.

Macmillan Cancer Information & Support Service are planning to use the themes and post with cancer related support on their social media channels.

The University of Bolton Library have put together a Libguide as mentioned above and a Reading list based around some of this years themes. They'll also be tweeting using the hashtag from both the main @BoltonUniLib twitter account and @HHSUofBLib both raising awareness of our resources and highlighting other Libraries and Information services contributions.
