Supply Issues 3M UK Plc Blood Warming Set FSB658 (ICN 1738)

Important Customer Notice Supply Issues

Ref: 2022/1738 ICN Number: 1738

Change:

  • The supplier 3M UK Plc has informed us of a supply issue with its High Flow Disposable Blood Warming product FSB658.
  • The supply issue is due to a raw material shortage, alongside increased demand.

Impact:

  • Blood Warming Set FSB658 is currently unavailable to order.
  • No alternative is available as trusts would have to purchase an additional piece of capital equipment to be able to use the alternative consumable.
  • Due to the short timeframe, it is expected that purchasing alternative equipment is not necessary, however we would advise trusts to do their own local stock take to see how critical the issue may be until the expected resolution date.
  • This product is expected to be back in stock mid August 2022. If the situation continues, we will update as necessary.
  • Please see our Downloads ▼ section to refer to the product listing for further information on the affected product code.

Next Steps:

  • If you have any further questions, please contact your local NHS Supply Chain Relationship Manager or Customer Services Advisor.
