Registering for an OpenAthens account allows you to access a range of UKHSA subscribed electronic resources including e-journals, e-books and databases, as well as NHS Core Content.
If you do not have an OpenAthens account
Please register at NICE OpenAthens. By using your PHE or DHSC email address and entering UKHSA as your organisation you will be automatically approved. Please note that if you have a DHSC email address we may contact you to verify your eligibility as a UKHSA employee. You should then receive an email confirmation with a link to create your own password.
Changing your settings if you already have an OpenAthens account
If you already have an OpenAthens account with another organisation/NHS trust, you can log in to your current account from NICE OpenAthens. Use the yellow ‘log in’ link on the top right and on your homepage there is an option to ‘change organisation’.
This means you will have access to UKHSA Knowledge and Library Service’s wide range of electronic resources. For more information, see our Accessing resources page.
