Healthcare Library goes to the Mad Stad

We managed to get a stand at our local PCT's TIPS event - this stands for Time for Improving Patient Services and is their name for Protected Learning Time. It was held at the Madjeski Stadium (home of the Biscuit Men).

There were over 50 stands and around 300 people attended including exhibitors. The idea was to showcase your service and show off what you do. We did a large poster about the library took lots of leaflets and did goody bags.

I use goody bags from partybox.co.uk - blue paper ones and stick Nelh stickers on the outside. Inside are Nelh goodies (pencil and monitor clip), fold out Nelh leaflet and our leaflets and a snack sized chocolate bar. These turned out to be an excellent way of enticing people to our stand and word soon spread - the lure of chocolate seems particularly effective!

I can also report that lots of people said yes when we asked if they used Nelh which is excellent.
