Clinicians and Managers who used this service said....

"The literature searches have helped us to understand the scope of the work we are undertaking. It has also helped us to understand technical or ethical aspects of healthcare interventions"
"The literature search was extremely helpful for dealing with a relatively rare condition and informing my input for the person concerned. It allowed a far more efficient use of my time which I welcomed immensely, and allowed my work with the person concerned to be better informed and evidence based"
"It helped planning client sessions"
