Change:

  • The supplier Cook UK Ltd has informed us of a supply issue with its Postpartum Haemorrhage System products.
  • The two product codes affected are:
  • FCB16840 – Postpartum Haemorrhage System Tamponade Balloon Set Max inflation 500ml
  • FCB16768 – Postpartum Haemorrhage System Tamponade single balloon catheter with rapid installation
  • The supply issue is due to unavailability of packaging.

Impact:          

  • The affected codes are currently unavailable to order.
  • Potential alternative products are available to order off framework from the supplier Femcare directly.
  • Alternatives ordered directly from the off-framework supplier have not been subject to NHS Supply Chain sourcing and assurance diligence.
  • Any local assurance must be carried out by end users’ clinical experts.
  • As this supply disruption is a patient safety risk, cross functional teams are working to support.
  • This has been escalated and regular updates will be provided.
  • Cook UK Ltd have confirmed they aim to resolve the supply issue by 31 January 2023

Next Steps:              

  • Customers are advised to review alternatives from the off-framework supplier subject to clinical expert’s review.
  • Should alternatives be made available through NHS Supply Chain this ICN will be updated.
  • 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.
