The NICE BNFC app is currently only available to NHS staff in England, Scotland and Wales.

Aimed at pharmacists, doctors, nurses, social care professionals and other healthcare professionals who prescribe and administer medicines, the app provides easy offline access to-up-to-date practical information on prescribing, dispensing and administrating medicines for children.

Eligible users in England can register for an NHS Athens account by selecting the Journal and Database section on NHS Evidence.

Eligible users in Scotland can register for an NHS Athens account by visiting The Knowledge Network website and selecting the login option at the top of the homepage.

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)
• Optimised for Android phones and tablets
• Auto-complete search with filters for chapters, monographs, interactions and preparations

    Great concept. Shame it don't work. Won't save to phone. Tis a pity that doctors can't use the same excuses as software designers and get away with it like they do

    Easily accessible, makes searching for medicine information much faster. Only one gripe, could the bookmarks be in alphabetical order?
