This centrally negotiated licence covers all NHS staff in Scotland. This licence provides annual blanket cover, so staff don’t have to ask permission from copyright owners each time they copy.

  • Copy up to one chapter or 5% of the book, and up to two articles from a single journal issue
  • Share copies with internal colleagues, as well as with external organisations who hold a CLA licence
  • Store copies on a secure network for as long as you need
  • Access tens of thousands of articles from the British Library, Reprints Desk and RSM using Licence Plus
