  • The supplier Becton Dickinson UK Ltd has informed us of a supply issue with its Administration Set products.
  • There is one product code affected:
    • FKA887 – Administration set Alaris GP Volumetric pump.
  • The supply issue is due to supplier manufacturing issues.
  • Due to this ongoing supply issue, this product is now being threshold managed as it is subject to Protect Demand Management.


  • FKA887 is still available to order on intermittent supply basis.
  • However, trusts are allocated a maximum daily quantity or “threshold” to ensure fair supply of available stock across the NHS.
  • A potential indirect alternative product is available to order through our online catalogue:
    • FKA861 – Administration set Alaris GP Volumetric pump.
  • However, this may also be subject to intermittent supply with the increase in demand.
  • We are currently sourcing further alternatives and updates will be made to the product listing as soon as possible.
  • See our Downloads ▼ section to access the product listing for further information on the affected product code and potential alternative and for a full list of product codes subject to Protect Demand Management.
  • This product is anticipated to be removed from Protect Demand Management by 19 July 2024.
  • The supply issue is anticipated to be resolved by 19 July 2024.

Next Steps:              

  • Customers are advised to log into our website to view the potential indirect alternative product.
  • Customers are advised to log into our website to view the product codes currently subject to Protect Demand Management.
  • The continuing supply issue is being monitored in conjunction with the supplier and we will continue to review the stock situation to minimise further disruption and update this ICN with the latest information as it becomes available.
  • However, as this is currently a disrupted market and supply is subject to rapid change, the alternatives offered may also be experiencing temporary supply issues and therefore, customers may need to consider clinically reviewing all additional alternatives provided.
  • 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.
