Library and Knowledge services

We are a specialist mental health library service providing a comprehensive range of services to all clinical and non-clinical staff and students based at DWMH. Library Services can help you access relevant up-to-date information to support your day-to-day work, research and personal and professional  development.

Libraries are based at two sites:

Dorothy Pattison Library (1st Floor Dorothy Pattison Hospital, Walsall)

Dorothy Pattison Hospital (41)

Tariq Saraf Library (Henry Lautch Centre, Bushey Fields Hospital, Dudley)

Bushey Fields Hospital (133)

The libraries stock a range of material for loan and reference, including books, eBooks, multi-media, reports, journals and iPads.

We are members of BASE (Broader Access Supporting Education), a consortium of NHS libraries throughout Birmingham, Solihull and the Black Country, collectively known as BASE which provides access to the services and collections of 24 BASE libraries. As a BASE library member you are entitled to use all 24 BASE libraries and access over 83,000 resources through a shared library catalogue.
