Are you a health and social care professional? We want to hear from you

1 in 8 homes could have dangerous levels of carbon monoxide that are harmful to your body after just one hour - yet the signs and symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning are not well known. Those receiving services at home, as well as the health and social care professionals working with them, may be at greater risk of exposure.

The All Party Parliamentary Carbon Monoxide Group is holding an inquiry into this matter, chaired by Liz Twist MP. Liz wants to hear from health and social care professionals working on the front line, to understand what kind of awareness there is about carbon monoxide poisoning; and to see how the risks of carbon monoxide exposure can be reduced and managed by employers and organisations.

We want to unlock opportunities to increase carbon monoxide awareness and improve safety practices in the health and social care sector.
