The CASH Database

The database is the hub of the CASH service. The content can be added, searched and exported to create personalised alerting services for library customers.  There are a number of newsfeeds that can be embedded into external CAS website pages keeping them constantly updated with the latest content.

To search for a specific item enter a keyword that may appear in either the title or summary.

Database entry is very quick and easy, see the Database Quick Guide for further support.

Search Tips

  • Search for the first three words in the title e.g. "Five year forward" will find everything about the Five Year Forward View
  • Browse a category from the drop-down list to see the latest news on that topic

  • Enter a keyword to narrow your search e.g. Category Mental Health and Keyword Parity 

Grimstone v Epsom & St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust

High Court, Queen's Bench Division
Year of publication
The claimant underwent surgery on her hips. Although the operation was successful, the material used left the claimant with some ongoing problems. She claimed that she had not been adequately informed of the risks of what was a relatively new treatment. The Court considered: (1) what the claimant was told; (2) whether the consultant took reasonable steps to ensure she understood; (3) whether she would in any event have opted for the new, rather than old, treatment; and (4) whether it was right, in the light of standard clinical practice, not to explain the limited amount of data available on outcomes for the new procedure.
