Books and articles
UpToDate clinical decision support tool
UpToDate is an evidence-based knowledge system that helps clinicians make the right decisions at the point of care. It contains over 11,000 articles, providing evidence-graded treatment recommendations as well as diagnostic and other information for common as well as rare conditions.
It is available to Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust staff and students, and can be accessed via the SaTH Intranet without a password. It can also be accessed off-site and via the UpToDate mobile app.
Our libraries are fully open – you can drop-in, browse the shelves, use the IT and study individually. If you need to access the libraries when we are unstaffed, you may wish to arrange 24/7 access.
In line with the latest guidance from Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust, we ask that face masks or coverings still be worn at all time in the libraries, even if studying individually, unless exempt or when eating or drinking. Social distancing is still in place, and some areas have limited capacity.
These measures help keep you and our staff safe. Please read and observe our COVID-19 guidance during your visit.
The NHS Knowledge and Library Hub is a new way to search for journal articles and other literature across a wide range of databases, including CINAHL and Medline, and enables you to access the full-text quickly (where available) or request a copy via the library. You'll need an NHS OpenAthens account to access the Hub.
