NHS England Purchases Database from BioMed Central

BioMed Central announced that it has signed a subscription agreement with National Health Service (NHS) England for images.MD, the online encyclopedia of medical images. NHS England's subscription, which starts next month, provides access to the entire content of images.MD for all 1.2 million NHS staff members.

Scott Gibbens, project manager of the NHS Core Content Group, said: "Our decision to subscribe to images.MD for the whole of NHS England was driven by high demand from users. This product is great value for money and meets our need for a comprehensive, high-quality images database for teaching and diagnosis. As a company, BioMed Central continues to provide new, invaluable, and innovative resources along with excellent service."

NHS signed up for BioMed Central membership for the whole of England in April 2003, becoming the first of a growing number of national organizations to become members.

images.MD compiles more than 50,000 high-quality images spanning all of internal medicine, all derived from Current Medicine's series of illustrated atlases. Each image is accompanied by detailed and informative text written by more than 2,000 contributing experts.
