British National Formulary for Children (BNFC)

The British National Formulary for Children is for rapid reference by UK health professionals engaged in prescribing, dispensing, and administering medicines to children. It contains information on paediatric drug treatment, but may not always include all the information necessary for prescribing and dispensing. It is expected that the reader will be relying on appropriate professional knowledge and expertise to interpret the contents in the context of the circumstances of the individual child. BNFC should be used in conjunction with other appropriate and up-to-date literature and, where necessary, supplemented by expert advice.


Access is available directly from this page by connecting to the BNFC website.

The NICE British National Formulary for Children (BNFC) site is only available to users in the UK.
