Description:

The main function of the National Poisons Information Centre is to provide information to doctors and healthcare professionals, to assist them in the management of acute poisonings. The National Poisons Information Centre Database collects and analyses epidemiological data on acute poisonings in Ireland. The Centre provides a 24 hour service, 365 days a year. Enquiries are answered by Poisons Information Officers between 8am and 10pm, while night-time calls are automatically diverted to the UK National Poisons Information Service (NPIS). Enquiries are logged on a computer database called UK Poisons Information Database (UKPID) which is used to generate reports. This is a database of enquiries to the National Poisons Information Centre from 2004 to date. Enquires from 1998 to 2003 inclusive are held on separate, older databases. For earlier years only annual reports (paper based) are available.
