You will be given a library card, which will be needed each time you borrow, renew or return items. We ask users to read and abide by the conditions of membership listed on the form.
PCs in the library are not connected to your Virgin Care network hence cannot be accessed. If you wish to use a PC in the Library for general work please ask a member of staff.
To register for an NHS Open Athens account please select Basildon & Thurrock University Hospitals Foundation Trust as your organisation and then ensure you have Virgin Care in the address field. This ensures you get assigned to the correct resources.
