  1. Drug transporter interaction info

    SmPCs are increasing mentioning the potential for interactions related to drug transporters e.g. CNT, ENT, MATE etc. however reliable lists of drugs that may affect them are lacking. Could Stockley address this please?

    • Why change a tried and tested format? Not useful for the busy clinician just to have an alphabetical list

      the new format is a disaster. The change to a simple alphabetical list for drugs is counter intuative. This is not useful for a busy GP who is often searching in particularly classes rather than for individual drugs. Please can you reconsider this? Back to paper version for me I am afraid.

        • Add mode of action

          Where drugs are listed as "Other ..." as in "Other Anti-diabetic drugs" it would be useful if the therapeutics category/mode of action was given beside each drug. eg: Liniglptin (DPP-4 Inhibitor). I am aware the action is discussed in the preceding monograph but be handy beside the drug entry.

          • less scrolling

            make the headings smaller so that you don't have to scroll down through pages and pages of stuff before you can even find the drug name

            • Change the way we find the drug type want

              The drug names are listed under links from the letetr they start with,, howver, drug types are listed alphabetically, these shoudl also be linked via a link from the first letter to make it easier so we dont have to scroll through a whole list to find the drug type we want.

                • BRING BACK THE STANDRAD BNF

                  please STOP listing medications in alphabetical order. The standard way you have been listing them under categories were perfect.
                  In a busy clinic as a GP, i want to be able to access the information i need quickly. NOT possible with the new format.
                  Really, what "clever" person decided to change things. Sometimes, despite "wanting" to be "dynamic" and "moving with the times" and all the other PR nonsense talk, just leave things alone. I am sure you will be getting a lot more comments similar to this - by the GPs who manage to squeeze in the time to…

                  • Please put the "Important Safety Information" boxes above the indications/doses section so that they are immediately visible

                    Often these crucial boxes are not visible on the same screen- need to precede the dosages to prevent prescribing before seeing the warnings

                    • New BNF format does not identify drug class or allow comparison of all drugs in class

                      Examples from this weekend on call:
                      - Prescribing benzodiazepines for agitation - paper BNF category of "Anxiety" only lists three drugs, not allowing wider choice and direct comparison of all drugs in the class
                      - Looking up unfamiliar drug hydroxyzine - BNF online only tells me it's for pruritus, not that it's a sedating antihistamine. I was about to co-prescribe promethazine and that information was therefore vital to my clinical decision.

                      If you wish to persist with this category format (e.g. by condition/indication, not drug class), can you please add information about the drug class to the individual listings? And…

                        • alphabetical list is only generic name

                          put trade names in alphabetical list- just liek the paper index. I need to look up drugs I am not familiar with if a patinet names them. Patinets tell you the name on the box.

                          • Calculators on the new BNF please

                            The BNF Legacy has the calculators for BMI, body surface area etc. easily accessible. They're not findable, possibly non-existent under the new format. My pharmacist users are using the BNF Legacy to access calculators but are concerned as the future of BNF Legacy is uncertain to us. In general, the new BNF structure has been a source of much dismay and confusion for my users.

                              A way to personalise your online BNF as this is one of the flaws of the online version i.e you can't write in the margin / flag favourite pages (Maybe add in a favourites option to the main menu)
                              This may get tricky when there are updates ...

                              • This new format of BNF is a tragedy

                                This new format of BNF is a tragedy for a busy clinician. It takes so much more time, it's so much more difficult to find information, Adult and Child doses together - just asking for mistakes to happen. Scrolling down this enormously long and narrow central column is so inconvenient, difficult to read.
                                Impossible to identify drug class when search used - just the initial letter, THANKS FOR THAT!
                                Why nobody asked us? Why a format that worked for so long has been changed? Why wasn't it trialed?....

                                • I'm disappointe with your new webiste format. the previous one worked well. as a clinician I relied on it completely for day to day queries.

                                  go back please to old format.
                                  i don't want alphabetical list of meds , i want the clinical tree. to see what family of meds does this individual med belong too and what others are there
                                  very disappointed

                                  • Use of Teicoplanin

                                    Sanofi withdrew their licence for use of Targocid (Teicoplanin) for surgical prophylaxis in autumn 2014 and it is no longer a licenced indication. In the BNF it is still listed as acceptable for prophylaxis.

                                    • A threat to patient safety

                                      BNF was the bastion of responsible prescribing. Your reducing it to a picking list of alphabetical products significantly denies us and our patients of this intelligent prescribing support. Please listen to the prescribers' feedback as the changes are a backward step in terms of patient safety.

                                      • The new format is a disaster.

                                        The new format is unusable and has clearly been designed by someone who never uses the BNF in clinical practice. I will make do with the "legacy" version for now but will this be updated? Will you stop publishing it at some point? Surely all the negative comments have to have some impact on you.

                                        • put in contact details so that errors can be reported to the BNF

                                          I have detected a potentially serious omission in a contraindications section and there is nothing in the new BNF section that lets me report this
