BMJ Best Practice will help you to diagnose your patients' conditions and make treatment decisions quickly and efficiently, giving you reassurance at the point of care

Access to BMJ Best Practice is currently provided nationally to NHS staff in England, Wales and Scotland by their respective purchasing bodies*.

Although a similar national license does not exist in Northern Ireland, we have worked with The Healthcare Library of Northern Ireland, to provide temporary access to Best Practice to support all Health and Social Care Services (HSC) staff during the COVID-19 pandemic.

How do I get my FREE access to BMJ Best Practice?

To access, simply visit The Healthcare Library of Northern Ireland website and create your personal BMJ Best Practice account:
