Finding the information you need

  1. Search for information or resources using either the ‘Resource search’ or ‘Health topics’ menu on the home page, and in the left hand navigation of most other pages.

  3. The ‘Resource search’ box filtering options are: health topics, languages and formats. You will also find additional filtering options for each particular search or resource result.
  4. After entering a code, keyword(s) or filter option, if your item is not shown in the popup menu, click the blue ‘Search’ button at the bottom of the ‘Resource search’ box.
  5. View search results either as a ‘Picture view’ or ‘List view’ by using the buttons towards the top right of your search results.
  6. Most resources can be viewed online or you can download a printable PDF.
  7. For additional searches once within a Health topic or Resource page, use the ‘Resource search’ options or ‘Health topics’ menu in the left hand navigation.

How to order resources

  1. If you already know which resources you want to order, you can go straight to the ‘Quick pick’ order builder under ‘My cart’ and directly enter your list of resources.
  2. Once you’ve found the resource you want, if you need hard copies, order these for free of charge by clicking the 'Add to my order' button. (Please note that some resource may be online only).
  3. Please only order the number and quantities of resources you need, to ensure they can remain available at no charge.

Changing your order

  3. Remove any items no longer wanted using the ‘Remove item’ button and click the ‘Update’ button to apply your changes.
  4. Use the ‘Cancel this order’ button to delete your entire order. Logging off before confirming or submitting your order will also cancel it.
