Problem with the save function on NHS Databases

There is currently a problem with the NHS Databases’ save function.

When trying to save a set of search results as a document the databases crash and will no longer work.

The problem has been reported and a fix is being worked on.

In the meantime, to work around this issue, please proceed as follows:

  1. Email your search results to yourself
  2. Open the document from your email
  3. Save the document to your computer

NICE guidance app

The official NICE Guidance app is available to download now for users of Android and iPhone smartphones.

The free app allows quick and easy access to all of NICE’s recommendations and advice, and has been developed in response to demand from users of NICE guidance.

Aimed at healthcare professionals, including doctors, nurses and medical students, the app allows users to search, browse and explore all of the guidance produced by NICE.

The NICE Guidance app works on Android Smartphones, Apple iPhones and iPod touch running IOS 4.3 and above. It can be downloaded from Apple’s iStore and the Android Market.

While the app can be downloaded for the iPad, it is not currently optimised for it, so iPad users wishing to access NICE guidance should access our Pathways instead.

SGUL Library Refurbishment – Summer 2012

During the summer the silent study area of the Library will be refurbished with the aim of creating more study places and an improved environment.  Many of the print journals currently stored in this area will be moved to a Depository Library in Egham where SGUL will retain full access to them.  Any journals to which we have sustainable electronic access will be disposed of.  Once the refurbishment completes in Oct 2012 only a small number of print journals will be shelved in the SGUL library – these will mainly be nursing/midwifery titles that are only available in print (e.g. Nursing Times) and popular titles such as the BMJ. NHS staff have full access to SGUL electronic journals when they are logged on to an SGUL computer.

Plans for the refurbishment will be on display in the Library once they have been confirmed.

If you have any queries about this please email Sue David at
