Change:

  • The supplier Avanos Medical UK Limited has informed us that it is replacing its Enteral Feeding Syringes.
  • There are six product codes affected.
  • As the supplier’s global customers are switching to the ENFit connection for Enteral Feeding Syringes, the supplier is changing its manufacturer to keep up with the new demand.
  • The new manufacturer is able to create a one piece design instead of the current two piece designs following customer feedback.

Impact:

  • The affected codes are currently available whilst stock lasts, once the stock has been depleted all product codes will be delisted.
  • The supplier Avanos Medical UK Limited is in the process of adding a new syringe range to replace these codes, but it is unlikely to be completed before the stock has been depleted.
  • Potential indirect alternative products are available to order through our online catalogue whilst the replacement codes are being sourced.
  • The ICN will be updated once we have further information.
  • Please refer to the product listing below for further information on the affected product codes.

Next Steps:

  • Customers are advised to log into our website to view the potential indirect alternative products.
  • If you have any further questions, please contact your local NHS Supply Chain Customer Services Advisor.

Please note that due to the clinical nature of these alternative products we advise you to consult your own clinical experts to ensure suitability for your organisations use of these products.
