The Human Medicines (Amendment) Regulations 2017 will come into force on 1st October 2017. They state that:
- Schools in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland will be able to purchase, without a named individual prescription, adrenaline auto-injectors to keep as spares on site to use in an emergency situation
- The intention is that the spare adrenaline auto-injector would be used for administration to a pupil at that school who is known to be at risk of anaphylaxis and who requires the medicinal product in an emergency
- The amendments to the legislation do not make it a requirement that schools have a spare, they simply allow for schools to choose to do this based on their own assessments and discretion
