NHS Education for Scotland (NES) has signed a new three-year contract with Pharmaceutical Press, the Royal Pharmaceutical Society’s knowledge business to continue the supply of trusted medicines information through MedicinesComplete, to healthcare professionals in Scotland.

This significant and renewed investment from NES demonstrates unequivocal confidence in the publisher and highlights Pharmaceutical Press’ ongoing commitment to provide practical and evidence-based guidance, supporting those who prescribe, dispense, and administer medicines.
