NHS Athens redesign

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
  • 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 ( 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

Are you Athens authenticated?

Are you Athens authenticated?   If not you may be missing out… Athens passwords unlock the door to a huge number of NHS electronic resources that can help you in your work, studies or research.  The National Library for Health  offers access to over 1000 e-journals, e-books and 7 key databases. In addition London Health Libraries and St. George’s Library have “topped up” the  national resources to bring you even more resources. To use them you’ll need an NHS Athens Password to login from any computer with an internet connection. (more…)
