Welcome to our new doctors

Welcome to all the new doctors joining us this month.

Registering for Library Membership:

You will need a library membership card to borrow books from our libraries and use our services. Register with our Library team at your Induction on 3rd August. Membership grants 24/7 access to our libraries at RSCH and PRH.

If you miss us at your induction, drop into any of our libraries anytime and register then.

Using our resources and services:

Search our book catalogue and our online journal collection  Or access our Evidence-based point of care tools such as UpToDate Anywhere, BMJ Best Practice, and Dynamed.  

For many online resources you’ll need to register for an NHS OpenAthens account. If you have an existing account for your previous organisation, be sure to change it to University Hospitals Sussex NHS Foundation Trust to access journals and evidence-support tools we provide for doctors.

Keep up to date:

Library membership includes KnowledgeShare, our tailored current awareness system. Updates are personalised to your needs and focus on developments that can change practice, and the latest publications on quality, safety, education and patient experience.

Log into KnowledgeShare using your NHS Open~Athens account to update and amend your profile.

Inform your research, service improvement and practice:

If you want to find the very best evidence but have limited time, come to us. We’ll search for you and will email you a selected summary of what we have found.  Request a search online.

Study for Exams:

If you have a Royal College Exam in the next few months, check our Exam preparation tools and apply online.

Refresh your skills:

Bite-sized sessions on Understanding the Evidence, Facilitating Journal Clubs and Writing for publication, plus many more. All are offered on-site or online; explore our programme and book a place here.
