NHS Guidance on the EpiPen Shortage – Questions from a lawyer and a parent

My son is age 4 and is allergic to peanuts. He has an EpiPen. The EpiPen is a medical device which is used to inject a dose of epinephrine to treat him in case he goes into anaphylactic shock. I keep an EpiPen at home and one is in his bag. I never have more than two at a time even though, as a parent, I’d like to have one in the car, in my handbag, in his sports bag.... This would be for all those ‘just in case’ thoughts that creep into your mind, especially when reading the tragic story about Natasha Edelman-Laperouse who sadly passed away after suffering an allergic reaction on a flight, and even though her father had administered two EpiPens.

NHS “Speak up Month” October 2018

Within the NHS October is “speak up month”.  This is an initiative of  the National Guardian’s Office which is an independent non-statutory body charged with the task of leading culture change in the NHS so that speaking up becomes “business as usual”.  Importantly the National Guardian’s Office is not a regulator but it has close links with the Care Quality Commission, NHS England and NHS Improvement.
