Access to BNF online is changing

From 7 November, you will no longer be able to access the BNF content online from Access will be via the MedicinesComplete website. To continue your access, you must re-register.

To re-register go to the log-in page, and there you’ll see a set of explanatory bullet points to take you through the process. Either print this off or keep it to hand, and open another window at The guide will take you through the re-registering process quickly and easily.

The only thing changing is the way you access your content. Everything else, including the conditions of access, remains the same. If you don’t already have an existing MedicinesComplete account, you will need to create one.

Free access – If you are a UK-based individual undertaking work (or training) for or on behalf of the NHS or an NHS organisation, you can gain free access to the BNF and BNFC via MedicinesComplete. If you are a healthcare professional working in the HINARI group of developing nations you can gain free access to BNF and BNFC via your HINARI country portal. See the log-in page for more information.

Paid-for access – if you do not meet the criteria for Free access above, then you can still benefit from the expert guidance in BNF and BNFC by subscribing via MedicinesComplete.

Once you’ve re-registered you’ll need to log in to MedicinesComplete to get to BNF, in the same way that you log in to now. You can do this here and click ‘My Account’ to sign in. Bookmark this site to save time.
