Your Health Collection

The Reading Agency has teamed up with Health Education England (HEE) to create ‘Your Health Collection,’ a new collection of books and digital resources to support users of health and prison libraries to understand and manage their health and wellbeing.

The collection of 10 books and 30 digital resources was selected by those working in healthcare, health information and knowledge and library specialists working in the NHS, prisons, public health and Higher Education. The collection will be available in over 300 NHS and prison libraries across England,

The book collection launches today, on Wednesday 6 July, as part of Health Information Week.
