Health Information Week 3rd-9th July

Exeter Health Library will be taking part in Health Information Week this year, which runs from Monday 3rd July – Sunday 9th July.

Health Information Week is a multi-sector campaign to promote the good quality health resources that are available to the public. We are also taking the opportunity to highlight some of the library resources and services we provide to healthcare professionals, providing access to the right information at the right time.

There are lots of activities taking place throughout the week. To see what is happening nationally, you can follow the campaign on Twitter #HIW2017

We have an information display stand over in the RD&E Hospital main entrance, which will be there Monday through to Friday. Unfortunately, we don’t have enough staff to man the stand, but there is plenty of information and leaflets available there.

We are also running daily drop-in sessions on an ‘Introduction to NHS Choices‘ – these sessions are open to all, healthcare professionals, patients and the public – pop in to find out more about this high quality health resource.

Here is a day to day breakdown of what is going to be happening this week:
