About this app

TOXBASE® is the clinical toxicology database of the UK National Poisons Information Service, providing advice on the features and management of poisoning. Monographs are designed to be used by healthcare professionals involved in the management of poisoned patients.

There are two levels of access:
1. Free - for those who work within the NHS, PHE & MoD in the UK access is provided to the full NHS TOXBASE database.
2. Paid - for all others the annual subscription cost is £6.99 via in-app purchase. Access is provided to over 1000 of the top TOXBASE poisons, antidote and pregnancy monographs.

Key application features
Clinical staff are rapidly presented with key clinical information, including advice on potentially hazardous doses and appropriate management:

* regular updates to ensure users always have the latest guidance
* UK Teratology Information Service advice on the toxicity of drugs and chemicals in pregnancy
* users can use built-in forms to provide feedback to NPIS on serious cases
* no internet connection is required to search the database (although internet connection may be required to access all information on some entries)

How the app works
All users will download the app and then complete a short registration form. Users will then receive an activation email. Once the account is activated users can log in to the app using the username and password chosen during registration.

NHS, PHE & MoD users must register using their NHS/PHE/MoD email to obtain free access to the full TOXBASE database. In order to continue free subscription re-validation via NHS/PHE/MoD email is required annually. Users are automatically sent an e-mail reminder.

All other users may purchase an annual subscription (£6.99). Users are initially presented with a free sample version of the app designed to help them decide whether to subscribe via in-app purchase.

Disclaimer
The information on the TOXBASE App is designed for healthcare professionals and requires expert clinical interpretation. Users are strongly advised to always discuss cases with their local experts in poisons management and not solely rely on the App to make medical decisions.

Despite double and triple checking that I'm putting in the correct username and password, app still says it's wrong. Can login to the website with the same login details no problem but unable to login in on the app.

Efficient and free for NHS staff. However could you work on getting rid of the slow "synchronisation" whenever we open/reopen the app. We look at it in emergencies, looking at a "sync plz wait" screen for x min when it could be done in the background isn't that awesome. Thanks - ED spr

Verified accredited details, still no access to the appropriate poisons and antidotes sections but seem to be able to get the information tab and upgrade tab! Very frustrating, the download information has been used in the recent NPAS annual review but there was no mention of how many users couldn't access information, a potentially great app ruined by functionality.
