The Emergency Doctors Bag

What drugs should I carry or have accessible?

There is no specific guidance in relation as to which drugs to carry. However, there are some guides that you could draw on e.g.

You should have access* to urgent treatment for emergencies that you may come across where treatments have a time dependent element for life-saving purposes.

e.g.

The definition of appropriate access will depend on the set up and location of your surgery. Practice may vary from each doctor having their own personal emergency drug bag  or a designated emergency drug store/bag being available in the surgery.

We suggest that each practice should meet, look at the available advice and decide a policy for what treatments are available and how they are available (personal bag, practice cupboard, practice emergency bag) basing that decision on their unique practice circumstances. For good practice they should document thier decision.
