NHS Athens


The NHS provides password protected access for all staff (and students on placement)  to high quality online health databases, full text books and journal articles via Athens.

Register online, ideally from an NHS PC  as this speeds up the process. Once registered you can use an NHS Athens username and password from any computer with an internet connection – at work, at home, at a public library etc.

If you already have an NHS Athens username but have forgotten your password, you may reset  it here.

NB. You may already have an Athens pasword from your university, but if eligible, it is worth having an NHS one as well. The NHS resources will complement your university one.
