Nice news from NICE – the Lancet online

Some excellent news from NICE announced yesterday 20 December. 

National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) has signed a 3 year agreement to provide staff with access to The Lancet via NHS Evidence (www.evidence.nhs.uk) – the service provided by NICE.From 3 January 2012, every member of staff who is eligible for an NHS Athens password can access the latest online editions of The Lancet, as well as back copies from the last 4 years, removing the need for NHS library services  and  individual members of staff  to subscribe to access The Lancet online – a move which will save time and money and which will provide NHS-wide access to this valued resource.The agreement will also cover healthcare students from an NHS-commissioned education programme involving practice and placement within NHS services across England.

In addition, a free print copy of the Lancet will be sent to your NHS library every month for the next three years, starting with the first issue in January 2012. 

Please share this information with colleagues.  Thank you.
