Change:

  • The supplier Avanos Medical UK Ltd has informed us of a discontinuation with its ENTRAL branded products.
  • There are currently 17 product codes affected.
  • The supplier is discontinuing these products due to a factory closure in France which affected all their ENTRAL branded products.
  • As all products affected will eventually deplete over the next 24 months, this ICN will be updated on a monthly basis with products that are expected to run out in that calendar month.

Impact:     

  • Depending on the current stock levels, the affected products are either available whilst stock last or will be immediately delisted during March 2021.
  • Wherever possible, the primary alternatives and substitutes have been provided by Avanos Medical UK Ltd.’s alternate range CORFLO.
  • The complete ENTRAL brand delist is anticipated to take up to 24 months due to stock levels held by Avanos UK Ltd and NHS Supply Chain.
  • Potential indirect alternative products are available to order through our online catalogue.
  • Please see our Downloads ▼ section to refer to the product listing for further information on the affected product codes.

Next Steps:

  • Customers are immediately advised to continue their current ordering patterns unless the products they require are on the product listing.
  • In which case, alternatives from Avanos UK Ltd and other suppliers on the framework have been provided.  Clinical consultation within the trust is advised to deem suitability.
  • Where delisted products are included in an NPM, if there is a suitable alternative from Avanos UK Ltd, the affected products will be replaced at the same price otherwise the NPM will be regrettably withdrawn.
  • We are currently working with Avanos Medical UK Ltd to ensure that where there are suitable alternatives, there is no cost impact to the customer if they switch to the MIC* G-Tube CORFLO range from Avanos Medical UK Ltd.
  • 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 Relationship Manager or 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.
