Medicines Complete – cancellation of titles for UHNM and North Staffs Combined Healthcare

The Health Library has had to cancel the additional titles within Medicines Complete, available to NHS Athens users from UHNM and North Staffs Combined Healthcare.

This is because:
1. Pharmaceutical Press, the publishers, have severely restricted the number of users allowed access.
2. This means that the resource represents poor value for money.

Access to the additional titles within Medicines Complete will end 31st May 2018.

Staff in the UHNM pharmacy department should contact the Medicines Information Manager for alternate routes to drug / medicine texts.

Medicines Complete is still available to all NHS Athens users to access the BNF and BNFc.
