Irish Health Repository

Lenus is the Irish Health Repository which is an Open Access initiative. It has over 4,500 full-text resources encompassing clinical research, policy evaluation, statistics and official publications and is the only Irish resource of its kind.

The content includes 3 collections :

1. HSE (includes HSE publications categorised by broad subjects, theses, archive of former health board publications and minutes)

2. Other Irish health publications (includes DOHC publications and other Irish health organisations)

3. Research Articles (this is a work in progress with the intention of including up to date articles of interest to Irish health professionals).

This is a broad collection and it is not limited to the HSE; it is a national resource and contributions are most welcome.
