Borrow a book from the Living Library!



How does diversity affect the way our colleagues and patients experience health and health services? Find out at the UHDB Living Library!

2-4pm, Wednesday 6th July and Thursday 7th July

Borrow a Living Book for just 10-15 minutes, to understand a bit better what it’s like to be in someone else’s shoes. Our volunteer Living Books are all NHS staff from Derbyshire and Staffordshire. They will be available to speak with you about their personal experiences of some of the Equality Act 2010 protected characteristics – including gender, ethnicity, age, and more.


It’s an online event, on MS Teams, so you can join us from wherever you are. It’s open to anybody working in Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Foundation Trust or University Hospitals of Derby and Burton NHS Foundation Trust.


We’re running the Living Library for Health Information Week (#HIW2022). This is a national week to raise awareness of the value of high quality information for patients and the public. This year, for #HIW2022, we’re focusing on diversity and the qualitative, experiential aspect of health information.
