*SCAS employees may choose preferred employer – there are some differences in resources available :

  • If employed by SCAS you may choose to register for an OpenAthens Account under SCAS as employer. This would give you access to more emergency care resources, and you could continue to use this account after you have finished your course. However, resources that have been purchased for your course may only be accessible under an Oxford Health Athens account.

If you are a SCAS trainee (with a SCAS Athens account) and you have any queries about your accounts/resources, please see below:

Others (and SCAS employees may also choose this option) should register for an NHS OpenAthens account under OHFT as an employer.
