The UK National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) has introduced a free British National Formulary (BNF) smartphone application for health and social care professionals who are contracted by NHS England.
The NICE application will provide staff with access to new prescribing information from the BNF.
NICE chief executive Sir Andrew Dillon said that ensuring staff have access to the latest high-quality information has always been important to NICE.
"The growing use of smartphones has created a new culture and means for people to access information while on the move," Dillon added.
"The NICE Guidance app we launched earlier in the year has been phenomenally successful and we believe that health and care professionals will love our BNF app too."
NICE will also soon launch the British National Formulary for Children (BNFC) app, which is in the final stages of development.
The BNF and BNFC are joint publications of the British Medical Association, the Royal Pharmaceutical Society, the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health, and the Neonatal and Paediatric Pharmacists Group.
