About Us

We are the Knowledge and Library Service for the Royal Devon University Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust – Northern services, based at North Devon District Hospital in Barnstaple. 

We’re here to support the information needs of clinical and non-clinical Trust staff members, health and social care staff working within the North Devon, Torridge and West Devon community, and students on hospital placements. Partners of the Trust, such as volunteers, can also access some services – please contact us for further information.
