Staff Health and Wellbeing is one of the three strategic priorities in the Healthy Ireland (HI) Health Services Implementation Plan. A number of initiatives are already in place to encourage staff to think about their own health and wellbeing. The latest innovative initiative is, Healthy Ireland at Your HSE Library service which has been rolled out to all HSE staff by the National Health Library and Knowledge Service.

Dr. Stephanie O’Keeffe, National Director of Strategic Planning and Transformation today (Wednesday 26th June) launched the initiative and welcomed the dedication of all HSE libraries to supporting and empowering our staff to improve their own health and wellbeing. The new service includes access to a large collection of ebooks and eaudiobooks on health and wellbeing. A programme of free health events and activities are also taking place in HSE libraries nationwide.

The collection can be accessed via Borrowbox. Borrowbox is an app that allows you to download and enjoy ebooks and eaudiobooks on your phone or tablet.
