The main role of the National Poisons Information Service (NPIS) is to advise NHS healthcare professionals on the diagnosis, treatment and care of poisoned patients. NPIS advice ensures that healthcare staff have access to up to date information about treating poisoned patients and that patients without significant poisoning are not treated in hospital, thus reducing unnecessary use of NHS resources.
The National Poisons Information Service publishes its annual reports as a statement of activity, accountability and governance.
