What can the Poison Control Centre do for you?

A team of nurses and doctors can:

  • Assess the urgency of the situation;
  • Tell you what to do;
  • Answer your questions.

If the Poison Control Centre recommends that you go to Emergency Services immediately, the Centre will then contact the hospital to prepare them for your pending arrival.
