16. Emergency Treatment of Poisoning

The Trust follows national guidelines on the treatment of poisons. Each A & E department has full information on treating poisoning and access to antidotes. 

Members of the public seeking specific information on poisons should contact 111 or look at the NHS Direct Website

This website is currently under development. Documents in the ‘Local Recommendations’ pages in each Therapeutic Section are current but the drug pages are still under construction. For the current East Kent formulary please see the note on the homepage.
