Imagine your child or someone you love has swallowed an unidentified substance.
The National Government is proposing to close the 0800 Poison helpline and hand its work to other helplines.
The experience overseas shows it’s much safer to keep Poisons health-lines separate and independent. When seconds count, experts matter.
If your child, or someone you love swallows a toxic or unidentified substance the 0800 Poisons helpline has expert toxicologists answering your call. The toxicologists are the same people that update the poisons database every day with new science, products and brands.
If National’s proposal goes ahead then who will answer the phone?
Can you add your name to my petition to urge the Government to change course and keep the 0800 Poisons Helpline independent?
If enough people speak out the National Government might stop its plan to close our 0800 Poison helpline. Together we can stand up for our kids and our families’ health.
Please sign the petition to keep the current service intact.
