The point-of-care tool UpToDate is not currently available via the Healthcare Library. However, HSC staff may access UpToDate as follows:
All HSC Trusts except Belfast Trust
UpToDate is available via Trust-wide subscriptions. Please enquire locally for details.
BHSCT does not subscribe to UpToDate, so officially staff in this Trust are unable to access it.
However, the School of Medicine at Queen’s University Belfast currently subscribes to UpToDate. While this subscription is, strictly speaking, for university students and staff only, HSC staff can avail themselves of it as long as they sign up with UpToDate somewhere on the university network using their Healthcare Library number and password, after which UpToDate can they be used anywhere for 90 days.
