Consultations are a valuable step in the development of BNF content

Health professionals, interested groups, and other users of BNF Publications are welcome to comment on and contribute to draft content.

BNF Publications

The final draft version of new, updated, and revised BNF Publications content is periodically displayed on this page for open review.

This draft content has been validated against emerging evidence, best-practice guidelines, and advice from a network of clinical experts. It is subsequently presented to our expert committee for appraisal against matters of policy and other considerations in light of new evidence.

Consultations will be available to view for a period of 2 weeks; replies must be received before midnight on the closing date specified in the draft content.

To receive alerts about content for consultation, sign up to the BNF Newsletter.
