Joining the Library

All Kingston Hospital NHS Foundation Trust staff and students on placement are entitled to register and join the library free of charge.  A quick online registration form can be filled in and the next time you are in the library you will be issued with a barcode to give you access to borrow books on the self-issue machine outside of staffed hours.  Access the registration form here.

Borrowing rights:

  • Trust Staff – 8 books for 4 weeks
  • Students on placement – 8 books for 4 weeks
  • Volunteers, locums and bank staff – 8 books for 4 weeks (managers signature required upon registration)
  • Private members (staff and students not part of the Trust) will incur a charge for membership of £150 per annum or £12.50 per month.  Borrowing rights and services available will be given on enquiry.


All books can be renewed three times providing another user has not requested the item.
