Katie Barnard, our Clinical Librarian for Women and Children’s Services, will be heading off on maternity leave on 20th October. Katie will return in October or November 2024.
We’ll miss Katie very much, but we’re delighted to report that her role will be covered by Andy Hughes, who currently works as a Specialist Librarian within the Sussex Health Libraries team supporting both Sussex Community NHS FT and UH Sussex.
Andy has worked within health libraries for nearly 20 years, so will bring a lot of experience to the role.
Andy will formally take on the maternity cover position on 6th December, at which point he will be able to attend meetings and actively engage in the role. However, he can be contacted before then for any queries and to book him for future teaching and inductions.
