Cate Newell
Knowledge & Library Service Manager
Somerset NHS Foundation Trust

Hello, I’m Cate and I’m the Knowledge & Library Service Manager for Somerset NHS Foundation Trust. I have worked in NHS libraries in the South West for the last 10 years, and prior to that in a university library. I have a background in cataloguing, acquisitions and resources management and became a library manager 4 years ago, when I joined the team in Somerset at the height of lockdown, organisation mergers and library moves…what a learning curve! I am delighted to be attending HLG this year to share the fantastic work the KLS team have been doing over the last year to support the delivery of our Trust People Service strategy – where we’ve had the opportunity to embed knowledge and evidence into People policy and practice. My professional passions are research support and institutional repositories.
