NICE Evidence Services

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence have just launched a new design for their evidence resources website. 

Features include easier navigation to clinical knowledge summaries, healthcare databases, BNF, and BNFC, all quickly accessible from any device.

An OpenAthens account is required in most cases to gain access to the these resources.

MEDLINE and PsycINFO users - vital warning about saved searches and alerts.

The provider of these research databases is changing from Ovid to ProQuest on Wednesday 1st April 2015.

  • Your saved searches will not be transferred, and will be deleted when the changeover occurs. In order to keep all of your existing searches, you must download and save them in good time, and the very latest, by 08.00 on Monday 30th March.

This applies both to users who access these databases via MyAthens Resources and Ovid Online, and via NHS Evidence and the Healthcare Databases. 

In order to download and save your searches, please refer to these instructions

Feel free to contact Library Staff if you have any questions or require advice and assistance.
