Change:

  • The supplier Farla Medical Healthcare Limited has informed us of a supply issue with its Procedure Pack products.
  • Eight product codes are affected in total:
    • EVS667, EVS671, EVS682, EVS688, EVS696, EVX632, EVX633 and EVX654.
  • The supply issue is due to reduced manufacturing capabilities as they are concentrating on production of faster moving lines.
  • Farla Medical Healthcare Limited have confirmed that they are out of stock of these products.

Impact:          

  • The affected codes are currently unavailable to order.
  • Potential indirect alternative products are available to order through our online catalogue.
  • However, some of these products may also be subject to intermittent supply.
  • See our Downloads ▼ section to access the product listing for further information on the affected product codes and potential alternatives.
  • The supply issue is anticipated to be resolved by 1 May 2024.

Next Steps:              

  • Customers are advised to log into our website to view the potential indirect alternative products.
  • 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.
