Spotlight on NHS OpenAthens!

You may already have an NHS Athens account but if you don’t, here’s a quick introduction to some of the benefits of signing up!


The library has a wide range of online resources available to MY staff & placement students, to aid with work/study. Find out more by visiting the library resources webpage.

To gain access to these resources, you will need to create an NHS OpenAthens account* by visiting and completing the registration form.

*Please note that you will need to sign up using your work email address to be automatically made eligible to access online resources.

Once you’ve completed the registration form you should receive an activation email from OpenAthens. Please note that you need to activate your OpenAthens account before you can use it

If you already have an NHS OpenAthens account with another NHS Trust, you can transfer this over to The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust. You can do this yourself from your account settings, or by contacting your OpenAthens account administrator.

If you’ve forgotten your OpenAthens log in details & need to change your password,visit MyAthens password reset page.

If you have any problems during the sign up process, please don’t hesitate to contact a member of the MY staff library team, who will be happy to help 🙂

So, what are you waiting for? Sign up today!
