What’s New? is a monthly current awareness bulletin, produced by Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust Staff library service.
The bulletin is aimed at staff working within clinical and non-clinical environments and brings together the latest guidelines/standards/appraisals, reports and reviews to keep staff up to date.
This month’s bulletin includes the latest guidance, standards, appraisals and systematic reviews published during April 2017.
You can download the latest bulletin, and all previous editions, directly to your desktop from the library website.
If you are a Trust employee and would like copies of What’s New? delivered to your inbox every month, please contact the library by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone (ext 53899).
As part of their patient and public information remit, health libraries are trying to engage more with customers outside the healthcare workforce. As part of our role in this we have created a dedicated patient health information page on our website.
The page has been created to signpost patients and the public towards reliable online health information. We also aim to raise awareness about local/national organisations which exist to provide support and advice for those with health enquiries or issues.
This page will be regularly updated so please keep checking back for our updates.

Today we wanted to shine the light on Trip Database – a tool which allows healthcare professionals to find the best available evidence to answer their clinical questions.
The database contains links to thousands of sites, offering the highest levels of evidence, such as systematic reviews and clinical guidelines. As well as providing research evidence users are also able to search across other content types such as images,videos,educational courses,news and patient information leaflets.
These graphics better show the features of this resource & the benefits of using it as a healthcare professional:
If your search highlights research studies that aren’t directly accessible in full-text never fear we are able to offer Trust staff a document supply service (contact us directly for more information).
If you want to find out more about using Trip Database these links are a good place to start:

The Trip Database blog contains useful guides, tips & tricks. You can access it here.
Access to the premium version of the Trip database (Trip Pro) is freely available to everyone in the NHS in England (via Health Education England). It’s worth noting that Trip Pro is accessed via IP address (so you would need to access the database using an NHS computer).
