About Minervation

We build accessible, usable and reliable websites.

We specialise in supporting evidence-based health care.

Our real pièce de résistance is producing evidence-based information by:


Finding all of the high quality research on any given subject.


Filtering out irrelevant, biased and unreliable evidence


Presenting it in an accessible, usable, dynamic format.

Health information should be accessible, usable and reliable, and co-produced with its users.

We love to work in partnership with organisations that share these goals.

Our History

We have worked in Oxford since the mid-1990s, for the NHS and also for the University of Oxford.

Minervation team meeting

André and Douglas both trained in Information Science and have spent a number of years working in Evidence-Based Health Care.

André cut his teeth working at the University of Oxford Department of Psychiatry and Douglas got the EBM bug at the Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine.

We set up Minervation as a spin-out from Oxford University in 2002 because we saw the opportunity to start a business that could help individuals and organisations who shared our vision for health information.

We work with charities, public sector organisations, academic groups and commercial clients.

Our ethos is simple:

We always conduct ourselves with honesty and integrity. We believe in inclusive and open-minded working. We are passionate lifelong learners. We strive to take a fresh and original approach to new and existing work.
