Cancellation of UpToDate

As you may already be aware, we have recently cancelled our subscription to the clinical evidence resource, UpToDate - this was due to an unsustainable increase in the annual subscription fee. We know that UpToDate was a popular resource and although we looked at many options to find a way forward up to December 2019, a workable resolution unfortunately could not be found. 

You can find quick links to alternatives to UpToDate on the right, and you can find out more about them on our Resources page

Alternatives to UpToDate

We still offer access to three powerful evidence-based tools that can be used in the same way as UpToDate: 

DynaMed - choose OpenAthens on the login page

BMJ Best Practice - choose access through your institution on the login page.

ClinicalKey - choose OpenAthens login on the login page.
