  1. According to the Dept of Health each year in England and Wales there are just 4,000 visits to A&E that result from carbon monoxide poisoning.
    If everyone visiting A&E isn't routinely tested for carbon monoxide as soon as arrive !! 
    How do the Dept of Health know that there are just 4,000 visits to A&E every year ??
  2. According to the Dept of Health each year in England and Wales there are just 200 non-fatal carbon monoxide poisonings that require hospital admission !!
    How can the Dept of Health come up with just 200 non-fatal carbon monoxide poisonings that require hospital admission if everyone going to hospital isn't being routinely tested for carbon monoxide by paramedic's and A&E consultants ??
  3. According to the Dept of Health each year in England and Wales there are approximately 50 accidental deaths from carbon monoxide !!
    If carbon monoxide isn't tested for routinely at post mortem on everyone. How do the Department of Health know their are just 50 deaths a year ??
  4. According to the Dept of Health each year carbon monoxide costs them just £178 MILLION !!
    If there are NO true statistic's for carbon monoxide deaths and injuries. Surly the cost quoted for carbon monoxide as £178 MILLION may be way out too !!
