The BNF app on an iPhone

The BNF & BNFC app brings together content from both the British National Formulary (BNF) and BNF for Children (BNF), providing access to practical, evidence-based medicines information on your smartphone or tablet.

The BNF provides up-to-date guidance on prescribing, dispensing and administering medicines, with special reference to their uses, cautions, contraindications, side-effects and dosage. The BNFC tailors the information for the drug management and treatment of children. The app will be updated with the latest clinical content once a month.

The app makes it even easier to find what you're looking for with intuitive predictive search, and easy-to-navigate sections. It also includes a robust interactions checker which makes identifying potentially serious issues between combinations of drugs quick and simple. 

You can access this information whenever and wherever you need it as the app doesn't require an internet connection to search or view content.

This new app replaces the NICE BNF app, and is designed for prescribers, pharmacists, and other health and social care professionals. It is free for non-commercial use in the UK.
