* RESOLVED* BMJ Best Practice - no offsite access via Shibboleth

There continues to be no offsite access via Shibboleth to BMJ Best Practice - the BMJ are investigating the issue.

Onsite and app access are still working, and offsite access via personal account (when the personal account has been created onsite) is working.

To create a personal account fill in the registration form on the BMJ Best Practice website, while onsite at St George’s University of London (using the computer rooms, a Library laptop or your own device while connected to our Eduroam WiFi network).

The email and password you choose when you register can then be used to access the BMJ Best Practice website, or to install the full content of the BMJ Best Practice app (see this Library blog post for details).

If you continue to experience problems accessing BMJ Best Practice please email

We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. We will post an update once we have further information.
