SevernSide’s Clinical Assessment Service (CAS) receives the toxic ingestion cases from NHS111. These cases appear in the IUC Advice queue, are tagged as ‘Toxic Ingestion’ and have a 15 minute timeframe. Please be vigilant for these cases, and pick them up promptly.
Toxbase e-learning is available for free. The “Learn how to use TOXBASE” e-learning module provides a helpful overview, and we ask that all clinicians undertake this training. Clinicians have fed back that the online training is directly relevant and useful for managing these cases.
