This service is not available to undergraduate students but we are happy to provide guidance.

NHS staff are entitled to request that a literature search be performed by a librarian on their behalf.

This service is provided to answer clinical questions related to patient care and complex, unusual or difficult healthcare and administrative questions that have arisen in the workplace.

Several databases are searched to provide good quality evidence-based information to support research, guideline and care pathway development, audit and policy. The results of a search will be a list of bibliographic references which will be emailed to you.

Please allow at least 5 working days for the return of your results.
