Hello, I’m Kathryn Butler and I’m a Librarian at Norfolk & Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust. NSFT is a mental health Trust and the library provides services to all staff who work here. I’ve worked at NSFT for about a year now, having relocated from Leicester.
My job is quite varied and I love working with health information; it’s so diverse and a great opportunity to make an impact on patient care. Mental health in itself is a fascinating area, and rightly starting to gain more coverage. Hopefully by tweeting this week I’ll help to raise its profile too.
Besides NHS libraries, I’ve worked in academic and government libraries as well as at a research institute. I also completed my MSc in Information & Library Management at Loughborough in 2008. I’m a CILIP member and just finalising my portfolio for Chartership, so I may tweet about that as well.
Outside of work I’m a bit of an avid reader, as well as playing badminton and enjoying hill walking (not too many hills in Norfolk though)!
Finally, think I’d better add a disclaimer: all views expressed here are my own and not those of my employer.
