Reviews

Good idea, poor execution I got the app because I thought it would let me access information more quickly. It wants to connect to the Internet and GPS and update itself before it will work. This ends up taking longer than a very slow hospital computer, making it useless for clinical work.

Good app, keeps wanting to use location and uses battery all day

Poor customer service Has been crashing when trying to purchase annual subscription. No reply to queries either via app or twitter. Very poor service

Slow updates at point of use render this useless Obviously the info needs to be u p to date, but every time I've tried to use this app, it takes some time to update. Not useful with an acutely unwell poisoned patient

Good App - Should be free for NHS staff The app is good, the UI needs some tweaking though. Only issue - I feel it should be free for NHS employees. I can access the same things using my work log-in for free on the Toxbase website without having to pay a £6.99 subscription.
