NHS Athens redesign

December 18, 2008 at 12:40 pm Leave a comment

This week some developments have happened to the  NHS Athens system. Below is a list of the most significant changes

  • There is now an additional login to Athens option on the top-right hand corner of the National Library for Health (NLH) at http://www.library.nhs.uk
  • Once logged in, an NHS Athens users can now find information about their account and change their registered organisation, email address and password by clicking My Account.
  • NHS staff can now automatically self-register for an Athens password on the NLH site from any computer, as long as they sign-up with an NHS email address. Self-registration from a non-NHS pc with a non- NHS email address will take up-to 15 working days.  Please note that the Library will still continue  with it’s current policy of registering NHS staff for Athens on their behalf when they join the library.
  • When NHS staff  self-register for an Athens password or request an email address or organisation change, they will be sent an activation link via email to complete the process.  They have 2 days to respond to an email address activation request and 60 days to respond to other request.
  • Users can now login to My Athens ( http://www.athens.nhs.uk) with their registered email address instead of a username, as long as no other Athens account uses the same NHS email address
  • NHS Athens users will now be automatically emailed 28 days before their Athens account is about to expire and be given a link to a web page where they can renew their account

For more information about these changes contact our NHS Athens adminstrator, Claire Carter on ccarter@sgul.ac.uk.
