Registering for an OpenAthens account allows you to access a range of PHE subscribed electronic resources including e-journals, e-books and databases, as well as NHS Core Content.

If you do not have an OpenAthens account

Please register at NICE OpenAthens. By using your PHE email address and entering Public Health England as your organisation you will be automatically approved. You should then receive an email confirmation with a link to create your own password.

Changing your settings if you already have an OpenAthens account

If you already have an OpenAthens account with another organisation/NHS trust, you can log in to your current account from NICE OpenAthens. Use the yellow ‘log in’ link on the top right and on your homepage there is an option to ‘change organisation’.

This means you will have access to PHE Knowledge and Library Service’s wide range of electronic resources. For more information, see our Accessing resources page.

Forgotten your password?

If you have forgotten your password, you can reset this yourself from the NICE forgotten password page.
For any enquiries about using OpenAthens, or if you are having problems finding the resources you need, please contact and we will be happy to help.
