The BNF for Children provides essential practical information to all healthcare professionals involved in the prescribing, dispensing, monitoring and administration of medicines to children. It is now available to search online via MedicinesComplete, where weighted search results and search term guidance direct you to the most appropriate content.

It addresses a significant knowledge gap in many areas of paediatric practice by providing practical information on the use of medicines in children of all ages from birth to adolescence.

The BNF for Children includes:

  • Guidance on the drug management of common childhood conditions
  • Practical advice on topics such as prescription writing and reporting adverse drug reactions
  • Hands-on information on prescribing, monitoring, dispensing, and administering medicines for childhood disorders
  • Comprehensive dosing guidance for children from birth up to 18 years
  • Details (including indicative prices) of products on the market as well as reference to many essential products that are not licensed
  • Indication of the licensing status of drugs



Essential information to help you make the right decision. MedicinesComplete makes it easy for healthcare professionals to access essential information at the point of care. Find out more
