Essex Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust staff

All EPUT staff are welcome to join the Library. However, Bank Staff and Volunteers have to pay a £50 refundable deposit to register with the library, as they are not employees of the Trust.

You can register using this print form if you have a email address or online form and select OTHER for institution. NHS ID badge is necessary as proof of employment. You will be given a library card, which will be needed each time you borrow, renew or return items. We ask users to read and abide by the conditions of membership listed on the form.

Library Stock

A large portion of our stock has been bought specifically for EPUT staff and deals with all aspects of mental health. Refer to our E-books and E-journals for more information.

Computer Access

Most PCs on site at Basildon including the library PCs, are not connected to the EPUT network and cannot be accessed with your normal EPUT username and password. If you wish to use a PC in the Library please ask a member of staff.

Courier Service

To make life easier for EPUT staff who work some distance from Basildon, there is a courier service that operates between the library and The Lodge (Runwell), the Hawthorne Centre (Rochford Hospital), The Lakes (Colchester), The Linden Centre (Chelmsford) and Harlow Healthcare Library (Princess Alexandra Hospital, Harlow). Staff can request that books be sent to one of these locations for them to collect and return. Please contact a member of the library team for more details.
