Please note that the Wellbeing Room is temporarily closed due to current COVID-19 guidance relating to libraries. We will aim to reopen this space as soon as the guidance allows.
The Mike Clift Wellbeing Room is available to all our library members including staff from Whittington Health, Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust, North Central London CCG and primary care staff, Middlesex University students and UCL students.
Our aim is to provide a quiet space for reflection and rest, away from the demands of the workplace or classroom. The room also houses our collection of mood-boosting and wellbeing books.
The room is open for drop-ins between 8.30am -7pm Monday - Thursday with the opportunity to be booked between the hours of 8.30am -10am and 5-7pm for wellbeing related purposes.
On Fridays it will be open 8.30am -5pm and can be booked between 8.30am -10am.
To make a booking contact the library team on 0207 288 3580 or firstname.lastname@example.org
The room is named in honour of our dear Whittington Health friend and colleague Mike Clift, a Paediatric Practice Development Nurse and avid Library user, who sadly died in 2018. This room will be a permanent reminder of his pioneering work in the field of compassionate care.
In the words of Michael’s brother Richard, “The Whittington was, I think, the place of work that Mike loved best” and we hope that this memorial to him, in a place that he loved, will be befitting to his memory.
This room is for mindfulness, reflection, reading, thinking and being quiet and safe. Anyone using it for other purposes, such as studying, eating or making phone calls will be asked to leave.
