Photocopiers, printers and scanners


Printing is available from all of the computers. The library supplies printer paper free of charge for all database searches and work related printing. If you plan to do large print runs of CVs or other personal printing, please either bring in your own paper or purchase paper from library staff. Paper can be purchased at a rate of £1.50 for 100 A4 sheets. Please help save paper by printing only essential items.


There are MFDs available to library users in all the Trust libraries.

Charges for photocopying are not made to Trust staff at present although this may change in future. Charges are applicable to other library members in accordance with service level agreements and in line with Service Charging policy.

All copying must be done in accordance with the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988. Advice on copying permitted by the act is displayed by the photocopiers and on library notice boards. If in doubt, please consult library staff.

The NHS has a licence with the Copyright Licensing Agency that allows NHS staff to make copies in addition to limits permitted under the copyright act. A leaflet is available from the Copyright Licensing Agency.

Mediated photocopying

Users are expected to do their own photocopying from library material whenever possible. However, if you are unable to get to the library, you can request photocopies from library staff. Please see our Service charges for the cost of mediated photocopying.

To request a mediated photocopy, please download, print and complete an ILL Request Form   for each photocopy you require, then send the form to the library. Please ensure that you sign the copyright declaration on the form. Your request may be returned to you if it is incomplete or the copyright declaration is not signed. Forms are also available at each library site.
