Meet the Author - Paul Grzegorzek Epsom and St Helier Security Operations Manager by day, crime novel writer by night!
Our very own Security Operations Manager Paul Grzegorzek self-published his crime novel ‘The Follow’ ten years ago whilst working as a police officer in Brighton. Join Paul in the Hirson Library on World Book Night - Tuesday 23 April from 12.30pm - 1.30pm in the Hirson Library at St Helier Hospital where he will talk about 'The Follow'. He will give the same talk on Thursday 25 April from 11.30am - 12.30pm in the Sally Howell Library at Epsom Hospital. The first eight people at each site will received a free signed copy of 'The Follow'.

Point of Care Tools
We need your help to make sure that all clinical staff are accessing the correct clinical information resource to provide evidence based patient care at Epsom and St Helier. During September, October and November, we will be trialling one point of care tool DynaMed Plus. We want you to compare DynaMed Plus to our current point of care tool UpToDate.
DynaMed Plus is the next generation clinical reference tool clinicians can rely on for fast, easy access to point-of-care decision support. DynaMed Plus provides evidence-based content written by a world-class team of physicians who synthesize the evidence and provide objective analysis to help clinicians in their daily practice. More information about DynaMed is available via the Ebsco Health website. A step by step online user guide is available here and a downloadable guide is available here: DynaMed Plus guide [pdf] 3MB
To access DynaMed Plus during the trial, you will need an Epsom and St Helier OpenAthens account. You can access DynaMed Plus here. You can also download the mobile app and use DynaMed Plus on your mobile device. Contact the library at firstname.lastname@example.org to get access to the mobile app.
