This information will help guide and advise healthcare professionals with their health and social work. The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence have a platform which helps guide healthcare professionals to give the best care possible. The platform contains essential information for key groups including GP's and public health professionals, it also contains resources to help maximise the use of evidence and guidance

There is an evidence search which helps you make better and faster evidence-based decisions and includes trusted resources from over 800 organisations. The evidence search helps to answer questions from both healthcare professionals and students. The platform helps you bring together evidence on health, drugs and technologies, public health, social care, and healthcare management and commissioning in one place.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence have a program called NICE Guidance which is there to give evidence-based recommendations developed by independent committees, including professionals and lay members, and consulted on by stake-holders. You can review the evidence across broad health and social care topics. There is also access to journals and databases where you browse or search for a particular journal, and then search for relevant articles within it. You can gain quick access to a range of journals and other evidence-based resources for health and social care staff in England.

These resources are provided in partnership with Health Education England and NICE and you'll need an NHS OpenAthens account to access most of these resources.
