Thank you to all members of the public, patient support groups and health care professionals for your continued support and encouraging feedback. We have now had over 1 million hits on our site!
Our aim is to write bumps information leaflets for as many medicines as possible. We are in the process of compiling a list of requests so please keep them coming.
bumps leaflets are freely available and are based on the same scientific information we use to advise health care professionals. We analyse all the relevant scientific studies that are available, not just the most recent ones.
