We are the creators of the
National Elf Service!

National Elf Service

The National Elf Service is a collection of evidence-based websites aimed at health and social care professionals.

Our tagline is: No bias, no misinformation, no spin. Just what you need!

The individual elf sites cover a range of topics and are designed to help busy people keep up to date with the latest reliable research.

We do this by finding high quality research, critically appraising it and asking subject experts to summarise it in simple and clear blogs.


“Minervation has been central to the lasting success of the James Lind Library.  They share my commitment to improving health care through a better understanding of what makes reliable research.”
