Helen Weir is retiring as Library Manager at Harrogate District Hospital at the end of July. Daniel Park will be joining Harrogate as Library Manager on 25th July, from Leeds Teaching Hospitals. Both Helen and Daniel were at the YOHHLNet study Day at Leeds Central Libraries on 29th June, pictured, where Helen was presented with flowers in recognition of her years of service to health librarianship.

Daniel has worked in academic, school and third sector organisations as well as special libraries over the last 27 years. He joined Leeds Teaching Hospitals in 2014, originally as a library assistant before working his way up to become assistant librarian, and recently an acting site librarian.

Helen started work as an Assistant Librarian in the Palaeontology and Mineralogy Library at the Natural History Museum 36 years ago, and later worked in the Further Education sector at Leeds College of Building before starting at Harrogate District Hospital as Deputy Librarian in 2004.
