In an Emergency
Keep contact details beside the house phone or store in the phones internal directory.If your child is unconscious, fitting, being sick, feeling very sleepy or has burning to their mouth - DIAL 999 immediately for an ambulance to take them to A&E.
If you suspect your child has swallowed something poisonous there are 3 main things to remember:
· DO NOT try to make the child sick or give them anything to eat or drink, just wet their lips with cold water if they are burning.
· Get medical advice / help immediately. Ring your GP, 111 or A&E at your local hospital.
· Take the package, bottle with you to the GP or hospital.
