Evidence Searches

Our staff are skilled in carrying out evidence (literature) searches to support clinical practice, service development, research and publication. We can help save you time and ensure you find the high-quality evidence to support your evidence-based practice. 

This is a free service provided to all staff, and you can have your search set up as an alert to email you details of new publications on a monthly or weekly basis.
