Need some evidence? Let us do the literature searching for you…

Have you ever wanted evidence and research to support a change you would like to make at work?
Or wanted to do some background reading to help with a clinical or non-clinical situation that's new to you?

Are you struggling to find time to search for the information you need?

Let our expert searching team take the strain and do the literature searching for you!

The Libraries at Chesterfield Royal Hospital, Kingsway Hospital, Royal Derby Hospital, and Queen’s Hospital Burton all offer a mediated literature search service to all DCHS employees. We have a team of expert searchers able to undertake literature searches for you. All you have to do is ask!

Just let us know the topic and reason for your search request and we’ll do the rest. We’ll search databases such as MEDLINE, CINAHL, EMBASE, and the Cochrane Library to find the best available evidence to help support you in your work and professional development. You let us know what information you need and we will send you the results including full text links where available.

We aim to complete all search requests in a timely manner, ideally within 10 days of request. If you need evidence urgently, be sure to let us know your deadline!
