From 1 October 2017, schools in England will be allowed to purchase adrenaline auto-injector (AAI) devices without a prescription, for emergency use on children who are at risk of anaphylaxis but whose own device is not available or not working.

This guidance will help schools that choose to keep an emergency AAI create a policy for using it.
