Access the BNF Online

The improved online BNF is on the new MedicinesComplete site.


The changes have been driven by your needs, and central to the new experience is the addition of drug groupings by therapeutic area to the Table of Contents, helping you to navigate relevant drug monographs.


NHS users will be required to re-register for continued access to the BNF online.

View the complete content from both the BNF and BNF for Children

Available online in a mobile-responsive format on MedicinesComplete. The smart search functionality makes it easy to find drugs, view monographs, and browse related information.

Combine the BNF with more evidence-based resources

As well as hosting BNF and BNF for Children, MedicinesComplete offers a series of other publications, including Martindale: The Complete Drug Reference and Stockley’s Drug Interactions, providing a wide range of medicines information resources in one place.
