Abstract

Sixty schoolchildren prescribed adrenaline autoinjectors were identified by surveying schools in Hounslow, London; the 25 families who consented were interviewed. There was inconsistency in prescription and use of autoinjectors with poor training, absence of written instructions, and lack of follow up. It is recommended that national guidelines should be developed.
