Literature Searches

If you are involved in quality improvement, clinical audit, research, or just have a complex patient case, you can ask us to find the evidence-base you need.

Email us at with information on your topic to get started.


We also provide training on running literature searches across a number of databases, managing results, and critical appraisal. These sessions can be offered on a 1-to-1, group, online or in person basis, depending on the need.


The NHS Wales e-Library databases page provides access to a range of clinical and management databases for your literature searching, including: 

Allied & Complementary Medicine (AMED); Applied Social Sciences Index & Abstracts (ASSIA); British Nursing Database; CINAHL Plus with Full Text; Cochrane Library; EMBASE; Healthcare Administration Database; Health Management Information Consortium (HMIC); Maternity and Infant Care Database (MIDIRS); MEDLINE; Micromedex Healthcare Series; Travel Health Pro; TRIP Pro; WISDOM.
