A new BNF & BNFC App is available to download, providing prescribers, pharmacists and other health and social care professionals with access to evidence-based medicines information. 

The app, which replaces the NICE BNF app (the NICE version will be retired in the next few months) has the same content and structure as print and web editions, and has been purpose-built for iOS and Android platforms. Features include predictive searching and an interactions checker to help healthcare professionals identify issues between combinations of drugs. Users are also able to retrieve BNF content when they are offline.

BNF director Karen Baxter said: “The new BNF & BNFC App has been designed to be responsive, interactive and very easy to access, saving clinicians valuable tine. We have had great initial feedback from our test group on its intuitive design and ease of use. This new digital format adds to the range of ways health professionals can access BNF content.”
