Access to BNF and BNFC

The BNF and BNFC are key resources for all medical and pharmacology students.

This is particularly important for Clinical Pharmacology students and those of you in your final year studying medicine, as you will have your PSA (Prescribing Safety Assessment) coming up soon and we know you need BNF and BNFC to do well.

Recently, we have made some changes to how you access these resources, so we wanted to keep you updated.

Access to BNF and BNFC

You no longer have to go via BMJ Best Practice to access BNF and BNFC. Instead you can go straight via MedicinesComplete. We hope this will make things a little more straight-forward for you. If you go to our website, you find the Databases A-Z link on the right-hand side. From there, all you need to do is search for BNF or find it under ‘B’.

Even easier, you can access both via Hunter. Click here for the BNF and here for the BNFC.
