NHS ‘acid’ attacks guidance

NHS England have launched guidance and information for the public on acid attacks. An infographic with key actions to take can be found on the NHS England website. There is also information for victims or bystanders immediately following an attack on the NHS Choices website.

The guidance has been produced by NHS England, but may also be of interest to pharmacists in Scotland and Wales.

Further guidance is available on the supply of poisons and chemicals from pharmacies
