Life changing resource
I got introduced to this app by one of my ED consultants whilst I was my earlier training years. I can tell you yet again that this made my life as a doctor easy. On the go, updated, easy to navigate, basic to expert level material.

Unrivalled for medical student finals / written exams when you need a full reference to most conditions. Really great on the ward when you need to read up on conditions quickly too. App itself works and is presented great.

Evidence base learning
This app is good at revising the topic and also help to know what’s the news update in that particular topic. Help in ED ,can be used on shop floor for a quick glance of summary or treatment algorithms

Very user friendly and has the most up-to-date handy information based on UK guidelines! Definitely the most reliable clinical reference tool I would recommend for any clinician who follows UK guidelines in their daily practice!
