The guide contains most of the abbreviations used in medical literature, here in the UK, particularly those used within the National Health Service (NHS). It also includes some abbreviations in Latin. This is a multi-specialist guide, which includes nursing, midwifery and medical scientific terminology, as well as administrative and institutional names and descriptions. It's laid out in Alphabetical order. Each abbreviation is explained, as it is used in the medical profession. The publication of this guide is an effort to help standardise medical abbreviations commonly and widely used and will be useful as reference. Learning approved standard abbreviations should be beneficial in many ways to medical professionals, including medical students. It should minimise mistakes made, when writing in shorthand. However, it should not replace clear and eligible handwriting of medical notes. As medical science keeps advancing, this guide will be revised and updated regularly.
