Free access to BMJ Best Practice for BMA GP members*

Primary care professionals often need to make diagnosis and treatment decisions quickly, but lack access to the latest relevant information and reassurance on-the-go.

As a BMA GP member, your membership now also includes access to BMJ Best Practice*, your instant second opinion. Designed for use at the point of care, BMJ Best Practice will provide you with trusted and evidence-based information to help you deal with the realities of clinical life.

Updated daily, BMJ Best Practice has been accredited by the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) for the third year running. The RCGP Panel ‘commended this excellent online clinical decision support system’ and maintained that the tool is ‘ideal for GPs, GP trainees and other healthcare professionals working in the primary care frontline’.
