What is Athens?
A password system that lets you access online resources subscribed to locally by us and nationally via NHS Evidence from any Internet computer. Click here to register on NHS Athens.
Do registrations have to be on a Trust computer and how long does it take?
We recommend that registration is done on a trust computer. Once registration is complete, resources can be accessed from any comuter connected to the internet. If you have difficulty accessing a trust computer, please contact library staff or come into the library. You should get an e-mail within 15 minutes containing a link to click to complete the registration process and set up your password. If this e-mail is not received within 2 hours, please contact the library.
What if I’ve already got another Athens account?
If you are entitled to have an Athens account from another organisation (e.g. University), you will still need our Athens login in order to access the full range of our available subscriptions.
Can I transfer between NHS Trusts?
Yes you can as long as your existing Athens account has not expired.

I’ve had an e-mail saying my Athens account will expire soon. What do I do?
Click the link in the e-mail to request a renewal. Please confirm that you are still working at South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust.
I tried to log in to a website with my Athens, but it’s not working!
