Welcome to Medicine Dictionary's documentation

Medicine Dictionary is an implementation of the NHS standard Dictionary of Medicines and Devices (dm+d).

dm+d is used throughout the NHS (UK National Health Service) as a means of uniquely identifying medicines and medical devices.

Medicine Dictionary website lets users comfortably search and browse dm+d data.

Written in Python and Django, it provides a great base for developing applications with DM+D at their core.

Think of it as Customisable Medicine Database Software.

The code is open source, and available on GitHub with commercial licensing and enterprise technical support available from the author.
