A NICE OpenAthens account allows you to access a range of quality information online. Our OpenAthens accounts are supplied by the NHS.

Those working in or with Kent County Council's Public Health department will be eligible for an OpenAthens ID. This includes full text e-journals, e-books and evidence-based databases. Some others working in partnership with KCC Public Health may also be eligible.

You can register yourself for OpenAthens at the NICE OpenAthens page. There may be a delay if you register with NICE OpenAthens before registering with the library.  Your organisation is "Public health provider organisations in Kent".  If the NICE website is not working please contact the Public Health Specialist librarian who will be able to take your application further.

Please see  OpenAthens own privacy statement for information about how your personal data is shared.

Once registered, you can use your OpenAthens account from work or home, whenever you wish. For training in how to get the best out of your account, see 'Finding the evidence'.
