MIMS celebrates 50 years of helping primary care practitioners

Since first launching in Autumn 1959, MIMS has evolved into a multiplatform drug and prescribing reference that you can rely on to find out about the latest drug launches and to provide up-to-date prescribing information. Look out for our 50th anniversary issue with a gold cover available in October 2009.

The MIMS look has changed radically since 1959, but the most important changes have gone on under the cover as MIMS has evolved to keep pace with the current roles of primary care practitioners.

Changes include:

  • Page count has grown by 500% to make space for the latest drugs and prescribing advice.
  • Drugs are now classified by pharmacological class, generic and brand name.
  • New quick-reference prescribing resources, see below.

Alongside the key benefits of MIMS:

  • Concise drug information
  • Continuously updated and published every month
  • New drug reviews
  • List of new and deleted drugs
  • Compact and readily available
  • Primary care specific

We are committed to ensuring MIMS remains a constantly updated, practical and easy-to-use prescribing guide for primary care.
