Have you got an NHS Athens password?

An NHS Athens password acts as a key to unlock access to databases, journals and other content purchased both nationally and locally.

The password is free, lasts two years (for most people), and is renewable (as long as you still work for the NHS!).

Registration is straightforward. Follow the link to “Get an NHS Athens password” on EEL – try and do this from an NHS computer as you will then be recognised as NHS staff and the registration process is quicker. It could take a few weeks if you register from home!

Complete the registration form – you will need to give an email address (work or home). When finished click Submit.

The next page will give you your username so make a note of this.

In order to choose a password and finish registration, you will need to check your email for a message from “Eduserv Athens” (check your junk / spam folders if you can’t see it!). Sometimes it arrives instantly, or it may take an hour or two! Once you have it, click on the link in the email and then follow the on-screen instructions to set up your password. If accepted, you will see an Account Activated screen.

Your NHS Athens account is now ready to use and you can use it from work or home!

To get started with your password, go back to EEL where you will find links to databases, electronic journals and e-books.

For help with any of this process, or to arrange a free training session on getting the most from your password, just get in touch!
