FIRSTLight is useful but not the first choice for essential drug information

FIRSTLight is a useful resource for UK healthcare professionals who require detailed information regarding medicines available for the UK market. Whether or not it is used for dosing information is likely to depend on individual hospital prescribing policies. Regardless of this, FIRSTLight is still a useful resource for those who need up to date drug information although it remains to be seen if it can topple the BNF as the first choice for pharmacology information.
