National Poisons Information Centre

The National Poisons Information Centre (NPIC) provides a 24 hour service to assist doctors and healthcare professionals in the management of poisoning. We also operate a specific Public Poisons Information Line between 8am and 10pm for members of the public who are concerned about accidental poisoning.

Our team includes 6 Specialists in Poisons Information who all have post-graduate training in Medical Toxicology.  Our Clinical Director is a consultant anaesthetist and together we provide specialised information about acute and chronic poisoning.

In addition, we collect product information from manufacturers to assist in the treatment of poisoned patients.

All patient records in the Poisons Information Centre are confidential. Telephone calls are recorded and data is stored electronically for clinical governance and training purposes.
