“William Martindale’s original aim when publishing the first edition in July 1883 – that pharmacists should have access to the most up-to-date pharmaceutical information – has always remained at the heart of the publication. In today’s online-first world we’re able to better support Martindale’s original aim through digital updates on MedicinesComplete.”
