CLA Licence Plus for NHS England

Covers copying from digital and print books, magazines, journals and websites


We have reached an agreement with the Department of Health on a single licence that covers all NHS staff in England. This licence provides annual blanket cover, so staff don’t have to ask permission from copyright owners each time they copy. Annual access to document delivery supply content from the British Library and the Royal Society of Medicine (RSM) is also included in this licence offering.

  • Make copies from publications from the UK and 38 International territories
  • Copy up to one chapter or 5% of the book, and up to two articles from a single journal issue
  • Share copies with colleagues 
  • Store copies on a secure network
  • Access tens of thousands of articles from the British Library and RSM using Licence Plu
