Rated 3.68/5 (28) —  Free Android application by D4t4 Solutions Plc


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 or PHE 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 users much register using their NHS/PHE email to obtain free access to the full TOXBASE database. In order to continue free subscription re-validation via NHS/PHE 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.

What are users saying about TOXBASE

by M####:

Very useful for my role as paramedic. Helps look at side effects and interractions of drugs that are both common and rare. The development staff are excellent and reply to any problems very quickly. Updated frequently. Highly highly recommended

by B####:

Won't let me register with my NHS email. Would work wonders for me on the ambulances. Edit: I emailed the developers directly through the app store who managed to sort out the issues everyone's having with registering. Havnt once been asked for payment. Really really useful app once it's up and running.

by Q####:

very useful in the pre hospital phase. had problems initially asking me to upgrade even though NHS staff. App support emailed and sorted for me next day. Can't ask for more than that.

by G####:

Used a confirmed active paid for account and still cannot log on. Seems an utter con for those who've paid. Don't do it people - this company doesn't care.

by S####:

Register my details, don't get a confirmation email via my work email, which is correct. Until that happens, I can't login. Tried at least three times, different user names. Given up trying.

by L####:

I have an NHS account and it still does not work. Keeps asking me to pay. Anyone help?

by T####:

I have an NHS account and still couldn't register, I eventually paid for the subscription and it worked for one day only, waste of time, don't waste your money

by U####:

I am unable to gain access to the app because I don't have an NHS email address yet. As a student this app would be very useful out on the road.

by W####:

Followed instructions to the letter and provided a NHS email ...didn't 't run. Don't bother! It's crap...!

by Z####:

Toxbase claims it is free for NHS staff but does not work.

by M####:

Seems to needs to authenticate each time you open it, so if you don't have good reception (e.g. In a lot of A+Es) it's unusable. I've unexpectedly had to revalidate my user details, which I have and it's still not working. Bottom line - whenever I go to use it there's always something that means I can't. And lastly, it's only needed at work, where there's a login to the website anyway.

by B####:

by Q####:
