Eligible users in Wales register for an NHS Athens account by visiting the NHS Wales e-Library for health website and selecting the Athens option on the homepage.

Social care staff who meet the NHS Athens eligibility criteria can also download and access the content.

Features include:

• Browse and search offline the complete up-to-date content from the British National Formulary for Children (BNFC)

    Replaces my paper version, which I have now burned to provide warmth during the cold winter nights. If you are having trouble logging in, go to application manager, click clear data and problem solved.
