COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

We aim to reopen the London Library to members soon, but this does depend on the COVID-19 situation at the time. Visit our keeping up to date page for the latest information.

The Edinburgh and Belfast libraries are still closed following government guidance to reduce the transmission of COVID-19.

The RCN Wales library in Cardiff aims to reopen in January 2022, but this does depend on the COVID-19 situation at the time. 

All our other services are available online, as they have been throughout the COVID pandemic.

Our training sessions and events continue online.
