MIMS print publication

First published in 1959, MIMS has grown to be the essential prescribing and clinical reference for UK general practice.

MIMS provides concise expert summaries of prescribing information for prescription products alongside a range of other quick-reference prescribing tools including comparison tables, guideline summaries, visual guides and a constantly updated list of drug shortages.

MIMS content is compiled by our team of pharmacists for the benefit of UK healthcare professionals and is not influenced by marketing information from pharmaceutical companies.
