Healthcare Databases for NHS Staff

If you want to search for information across a range of journals or are looking to do your own literature search then you need to check out the NHS Evidence Healthcare Databases Advanced Search or HDAS. This provides you with:
  • A single interface to search across a number of databases including Medline, Cinahl, PsychInfo and others
  • Thesaurus searching to help focus your search
  • Limiting parameters such as publication date, type of patient or type of publication to help you to get the most up-to-date, relevant information
  • Export options to save, email or print your results
HDAS Search Box
To get access to HDAS either log on with your NHS Athens username and password at www.library.nhs.uk or see the Healthcare Resources page on the Health Library website.

For more help in using NHS databases see our online help sheet  and guides

If you want more assistance to get the most out of this resource you could attend our training course on Literature Searching with NHS databases. Why not book online today?
