Medical students, Operating Department Practice students, Nursing students, Midwifery students, Physiotherapy students, and staff who teach on any of these courses are entitled to have an academic NHS Athens username. This allows access to digital library resources that are available across England, including Embase and BMJ Best Practice.  (The BNF app no longer needs NHS Athens)

To register for an academic NHS Athens username, please contact from your University email account, and tell us which course you are on.

Students on other courses in the Medical School or the College of Life Sciences are unfortunately not entitled to an academic NHS Athens username. If you are also employed by the NHS, you can apply for a regular NHS Athens. To do this you need to contact your local NHS library. In Leicester, these are at the Leicester General Hospital, Glenfield Hospital, and the Leicester Royal Infirmary.
