NHS library and knowledge hub

Healthcare evidence and knowledge now a simple search away

The new, Health Education England funded NHS Knowledge and Library Hub brings together a vast range of databases, journals, NICE guidance and other support tools in one place.

Designed to give quick and easy access through a secure online platform, we hope this will help practitioners, trainees and students with their professional development and evidence-based care.

Particularly useful for students on health-related courses (medicine, nursing, dentistry, allied health professions) who go on placement in NHS Trusts, content includes:

  • over 7,000 journals
  • books and e-publications, including OUP handbooks
  • one-click access to full-text, request a copy or contact an NHS library
  • clinical decision support tools such as BMJ Best Practice
  • NICE pathways and guidelines
  • databases like Medline, EMBASE, CINAHL and PsycInfo.

The Hub provides free access to all the HEE core content. This means that, once they have signed in, users can tap into the same system wherever their placements and future career takes them.   The Hub also includes content purchased specifically for BHT staff for example print books, additional e-books and e-journals plus signposted links to other searchable resources.
