As many of you are aware BSACI have released guidance suggesting carrying one epipen is enough.

Please keep signing and sharing this petition.

thank you

Signed and I will share elsewhere - thanks for posting. We carry 2 pens currently for my 3 year old. Our consultant tried to reduce this to one at our last review. I reminded her that our daughter had needed two shots in A&E at 15 months. Consultant had not read her notes properly and was trying to cut costs... I am thankful that we thought to challenge her on her original advice (on which we had assumed she was fully informed, scary that she was not!)

I signed this a while back - DS carries two epi pens.
It annoys me because parents who aren't forceful or used to standing up to others will lose out.

I also agree that we should carry 2 - the MHRA continues to support this as do the Anaphylaxis Campaign
