GGC Medicines (free…kind off)

Written for clinicians working in Scotland (Greater Glasgow and Clyde region).

A practical and concise handbook on prescribing for a vast range of conditions.

It is free…but in Aug 2015 they updated the app to force you to enter a username and password (which you can only get from if you work there) !

So here’s the version of the app before they updated it.

Once you download it to your phone just open it, and it should just install like normal.

Remember…make sure you click ‘NO’ when it asks if you want to update. Otherwise it will ask you for a username and password.
