Clinical Evidence now only available through Best Practice

Clinical Evidence is an online evidence-based medicine resource from the BMJ Publishing Group.  It is an international source of the best available evidence on the effects of common clinical interventions.

Due to changes to our subscriptions, SGUL users no longer have access through the Clinical Evidence website.  However, all SGUL staff and students can access all Clinical Evidence content, and more, through another BMJ resource called Best Practice.

[Please note that NHS user still have access to Clinical Evidence with an NHS Athens account, but not Best Practice]

Best Practice combines the latest research evidence, guidelines and expert opinion, and presents this all in a step-by-step approach, covering prevention, diagnosis, treatment and prognosis.  Best Practice also provides access to the BNF.

You can access Best Practice via the Library Databases pages or directly at  If you are off-site you will need to log in with your SGUL username and password (choose the Shibboleth option on the right-hand-side).

To access specific Clinical Evidence systematic reviews, click on “Clinical Evidence” in the top left corner of the screen.
