Library space

We regularly evaluate the use of the pod which is situated at the back of the Sally Howell Library.  The pod was kindly funded by Dr Shakil Rahman (Lead Respiratory Consultant and Undergraduate Clinical Sub Dean) and the Undergradute Team for use primarily by the undergraduate medical students for quiet study.  Other staff members can book and use the pod by emailing Library staff at: esth.libraryepsom@nhs.net.  The image below shows the first feedback report for the pod. Download a copy of the Pod feedback report here:   Pod feedback report June 2021
