NICE is responsible for the distribution of hard copy prescribing guidance to Health Care professionals with a prescribing responsibility working within the English NHS. This comes in the form of three publications; the British National Formulary (BNF) and the British National Formulary for Children (BNFC), which are distributed annually and the Nurse Prescribers Formulary (NPF) which is distributed biennially. All three publications are published in September and collectively approximately 350,000 BNF and BNFC are currently distributed to the English NHS each year. Approximately 25,000 NPF are distributed biennially.
