Toxicology services


Sepsis under a microscope

Our clinical toxicology service is led by three consultant clinical toxicologists, one emergency physician with an interest in toxicology, along with a team of junior doctors. We're further supported by a clinical toxicology database scientist, and a number of research assistants/fellows. We have close links with the liaison psychiatry service. We run an inpatient and outpatient service, managing patients with poisoning.
