No. Patients are not able to access LKC services; except in urgent, exceptional circumstances, on a case by case basis. For example, urgent use of computers to communicate with family and friends via email, urgent photocopying of documents (charges apply), etc.
The Library does not hold information that is suitable for patients. We hold information that supports clinicians and health service staff for professional purposes.
Patients requesting information from the LKC will be directed to their treating health practitioner or their local public library.
Free online health information resources, suitable for patients and consumers, can also be found on our website Public Resources page (see link below).
We also publish a number of specialty (subject) guides that are accessible via the internet and many of them have a 'For consumers' page. See full list of topics via our website (link below).
