What should I do if I have forgotten both my username and password?

Why do I need to update my account when I change organisation?

Resources can differ between Trusts as each Trust may/can purchase some local resources that you may want to use.

When you change organisations you will need to update your details. To do this login to your Athens account and click on My Account. Then click on Change your organisation. You will then need to complete the on-line registration form, after completion you will be sent an activation code via email.

Why Register for Athens

Athens accounts are for staff of ALL disciplines and students on placement. Resources include healthcare databases, image database, full-text e-journals, BNF, e-books, and much more from Local and National resources.

If you have both Trust and current academic status, you are entitled to hold parallel HE & NHS Athens accounts. The range of resources will be different. Therefore It is worthwhile having both if you are entitled to them.

How do I Register?

You can self-register for an Athens account either using your work or home PC.
