British National Formulary for Children 2020-2021


Published jointly by the British Medical Association, Royal Pharmaceutical Society, the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health, and the Neonatal and Paediatric Pharmacists Group

The British National Formulary for Children is the first choice for concise medicines information for children.

Trusted by healthcare professionals across the world to support confident decision-making at the point of care.

The new edition provides up-to-date guidance on prescribing, dispensing, and administering medicines to children, plus legal and professional guidelines.
