Most hospitals will have a Library or Education centre. You are entitled to join as either a student on placement there or as a member of staff (includes bank staff). This will give you access to their print books and you can also request an Open Athens account. If you are on placement at the hospital you may be offered an introductory session by the library (Education centre). We recommend that you attend so that you can take full benefit of the additional resources that the NHS provides. If this doesn't happen, visit the library and ask to be signed up. You can find a list of NHS libraries here.
Similar to OneSearch this hub searches the NHS core collection of library resources and also gives quick access to NICE guidelines and BMJ best practice. It provides access to some collections that the University does not subscribe to, such as the British Nursing Index and Embase, as well as some we do, such as CINAHL. These are the resources that you will have access to in your professional career so it is a good idea to get familiar with them now.
You will need an OpenAthens account to view the full-text, search individual collections or access full-text. This is different to the University which uses something called Shibboleth or Institutional access.
