A procedure is in place to collect the generic adrenaline auto-injector when a student experiences an anaphylactic episode in case a second dose is needed or the student’s auto-injector fails. By whom and how?

Student’s auto-injector is kept with the student. Student is assessed to determine where it’s appropriate for them to carry their own auto-injector for emergency use or if appropriate staff member/s need to be responsible for this.
