Pharmaceutical Press

Pharmaceutical Press focus on the design, manufacture and therapeutic use of medicines, with a body of knowledge that is relied on by health professionals worldwide.

Pharmaceutical Press is the publishing arm of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society, which is responsible for the leadership and support of the pharmacy profession within England, Scotland and Wales. The society has published information for pharmacists since 1841 and the unique position of Pharmaceutical Press allows it to draw on the society’s knowledge and research.

We are happy to include two Pharmaceutical Press titles in the Indextra app: BNF, British National Formulary, and BNF for Children, which are the standard drug references for the UK and beyond. They provide guidance on prescribing, dispensing, and administering medicines, and are updated monthly.

We have worked with Pharmaceutical Press since 2003. Long before there was an official NHS app, we produced a mobile version of the BNF and BNF for Children for pharmacists and doctors. Essential knowledge for the science and practice of pharmacy has always been close to our hearts.
