Uplifting resources: for the NHS, from the NHS

Health Education England and The Reading Agency have created a crowd-sourced uplifting book collection and a supporting list of digital resources, all recommended by NHS staff, for NHS staff.

The collection launched as part of Health Information Week and contains ten books that have been recommended via a survey circulated by the NHS. The final list was selected by a panel of NHS staff.

The book collection contains fiction, non-fiction, and poetry, and a supporting collection of uplifting digital resources, including poems, websites, videos and apps, can be accessed here.
