Dear London Ambulance Service NHS Trust,

I would like to know if the service currently uses Methoxyflurane (Penthrox) and if so, what date was this introduced? What clinical staff grades (eg paramedic, IHCD technician) are able to administer this medication?

If it is not used, are there any plans to introduce this?

Yours faithfully,

L Davies

Dear L Davies

Thank you for your request for information below. The Trust does not use Methoxyflurane, and therefore we do not hold recorded information within the scope of your request.

Next steps

We hope the above information is helpful. However, if you are unhappy with our response, or the way in which your request has been handled, you may ask us to carry out an internal review.

Should you remain dissatisfied following an internal review, you would have the right to appeal to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO). However, I should point out that you would be expected to exhaust the Trust’s own internal review process before appealing to the ICO. The ICO’s contact details are:
