Library and Knowledge Service

The Library and Knowledge Service informs the delivery of high-quality, evidence-based health care in Brighton & Hove and the surrounding areas.

You can access information skills teaching, evidence search and current awareness services remotely or on our sites at the Royal Sussex County Hospital and Mill View Hospital.

We have a team of librarians, including one dedicated to Primary Care who aims to be as helpful and responsive as possible!

For more info or help with any of the services below contact your Specialist Primary Care Librarian, Kevin Burgoyne:

You can sign-up for our award-winning research dissemination service, to receive horizon scanning emails relating to your own professional interests.

Evidence searches

If you want to find the best evidence to inform service change or commissioning but have limited time, we can search for you. Anything relating to specific patient care takes priority. 


If you need a refresher on the best sources of evidence, tips on using them or guidance on critically appraising quantitative and qualitative research you can join one of our scheduled sessions.


An OpenAthens account is a simple way of logging in with a single username and password to access a huge range of online research information, aimed at NHS staff.
