App of the Month – the BNF and BNF for Children

Over the coming year we will be telling you about a number of apps that can help you to make the most of the resources we have on offer via mobile / tablet devices.

Let’s start with one of your essential resources: the British National Formulary (BNF).

You can access the BNF and BNF for children on your mobile phone or tablet. You can download the app for free but will need your NHS Athens username / password during the registration process.

The BNF and BNFc apps allow you to:

  • Browse and search drug reference information
  • Access details of medicines including their uses, cautions, contra-indications, side-effects and doses
  • Keep up-to-date with the latest prescribing information
  • Access information without access to a network connection
  • Bookmark favourite pages
We have a short guide to the BNF app to help you get started.
