Psychotropic Drug Directory FAQs

Why has Psychotropic Drug Directory moved online?

There are 3 key reasons for moving Psychotropic Drug Directory online:

1. Online access ensures the resource is available at the point of need from any location, at any time and to an unlimited number of users (depending on the licence). This is not achievable when reliant on a single physical publication.

2. Migration online supports achievement of the National Health Services of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland decarbonisation and net zero goals.

3. Online access enables more frequent content updates referencing recent evidence, helping ensure patient safety. Psychotropic Drug Directory on MedicinesComplete will be updated twice a year.

What subscription options are available?

With single and concurrent user licenses, our subscription options cover anything from small teams at one or more sites, to trust-wide and even nationwide. It is worth noting the cost per user decreases with increased coverage and so if users are frequently blocked from access, please get in touch so that we can increase the size of concurrency.
