New national collection of electronic resources available from April 2019

Health Education England have now finished their re-procurement of the NHS National Core Content.

The core content is a selection of electronic resources that are purchased on behalf of all NHS staff in England and available via NHS Open Athens accounts.

Following the re-procurement some services have been withdrawn from the core content collection and others added. Most notable on the withdrawals is the decommissioning of CINAHL plus with full text, which means the loss of a large number of nursing journals online, as well as the Health Business Elite database.

The new core content selection will be available from April 2019 until March 2022 and consists of:
