Health and social care professionals can now access up-to-date prescribing information from the British National Formulary (BNF) via their Android and iPhone smartphones. The official NICE BNF app will enable users to browse and search full content from BNF, receive notifications when new editions and updates are available, bookmark content and even choose their preferred reading settings.
Once downloaded, the app can be run without an internet connection meaning that professionals can access the BNF wherever they are.
