It is with regret that we announce that the subscription to UpToDate point of care resource will cease on 1st November 2019. Whilst this is a useful resource, the cost has risen rapidly over the last few years and, as UpToDate is priced in US dollars, the actual cost has been affected by the recent fall in the value of the pound against the dollar. As a result the price for 2019-20 is a little short of £24,000, almost half the total library budget.
BMJ Best Practice has been bought nationally as part of the NHS Core Content, which means that it is available to all NHS staff.
