Delisting Unomedical (Convatec) Urology Bowel and Faecal Management Products Multiple Products (ICN 1669)

Important Customer Notice Update

Ref: 2022/1669 ICN Number: 1669
  • Customers should be aware deliveries are still being received from Convatec for the 65 products being delisted as the supplier still has stock within their network.
  • Convatec has ceased manufacture of these codes, so once all stock is exhausted and we cease to receive any further deliveries, the codes will become available while stocks last (AWSL).
  • We are currently trying to establish how much stock Convatec has left and will update this ICN when we have further information.
  • Indirect alternative product codes have been identified for the 65 affected delisted product codes.
  • Please see our Downloads section to refer to the product listing for further information on the affected product codes and potential alternative products.
  • If you have any further questions, please contact your local NHS Supply Chain Customer Relationship Manager or Customer Services Advisor.

Change:

  • The supplier Unomedical (Convatec) has informed us of a discontinuation of a number of products across the Urology Framework.
  • There are 65 product codes affected.
  • The supplier is discontinuing these products due to a cease in production of these products from the company’s manufacturing facilities.

Impact:          

  • The affected products are available while stocks last from 31 May 2022.
  • Any customers purchasing Convatec products will be able to order them as long as stock is available. Demand management on these codes is still being explored to prevent earlier stock outs.
  • Once the stock of a product has been run down the code will be delisted. We are having conversations with the suppliers to identify suitable alternatives and an update to this ICN will be provided once we have further information.
  • Please see our Downloads section to refer to the product listing for further information on the affected product codes.
