The library team is much depleted and currently consists of me at the moment as both my library assistants have moved on recently. Linda retired and went to live in Spain and Sam found another job outside the NHS. I hope to appoint a new assistant librarian shortly.

Like many other libraries have reported we have seen the demand for searches and training increase significantly during the pandemic. The library has remained open and staffed during throughout and, just to prove that every dark cloud has a silver lining, we managed to secure funding from COVID charitable funds to pay for our UpToDate subscription this year.
