Healthcare Apps

The new BNF App has been launched offering one single route to drug prescribing information relating to adults and children.

The new app has been purpose built for iOS and Android platforms.

By combining information from BNF and BNFC into a single app there is improved ease of use and saving of space on users’ devices.

The new app is fully portable and users don’t need to be connected to the internet to access it; this means the BNF and BNFC’s authoritative guidance is readily available at the point of care in a digital format to suit the needs of health and social care professionals.

If you currently have the BNF App or BNFC App please check you are accessing the current content! The previous version will not be updated after 13th July 2017 and there will be a warning message at the bottom of the screen.

The new App is downloadable for free and access to it no longer requires OpenAthens.
