Health and wellbeing information

Libraries in South, East and North Ayrshire have worked in partnership with NHS Ayrshire and Arran to help support health and wellbeing in the community. This has been funded by the Scottish Government's Public Library Improvement Fund through the Scottish Library and Information Council.

Health information packs and DVDs

The Long Term Conditions Network from the NHS provide most libraries in Ayrshire with regularly updated resource packs on the following conditions:

  • diabetes
  • epilepsy
  • heart disease
  • multiple sclerosis
  • respiratory
  • stroke

There are also DVDs for loan on the different conditions which form part of the 'Self Management DVDs for long Term Conditions' voucher scheme operated by GP surgeries.

In addition we also have a broad range of health and wellbeing books available to borrow.
