COVID-19 has necessitated some changes to service provision. 

I will be working from home until further notice.

  • Unchanged: 24/7 access, via the Library website, to all e-resources from work, at home or offsite 
  • Office Hours: Monday, Wednesday & Thursday 8.00am - 4.30pm
  • E-mail: wachslibrary@health.wa.gov.au - please note, this is the only way to contact the Library at present, as the Library phone is not operational

  • Loan restrictions: Until further notice the loan of physical items such as printed books and reports will be suspended.  This applies to both items from the Library's collection and from other Library collections

Thanks for your support and understanding,
