Change:

  • The supplier Medicare Products Ltd has informed us of a supply issue with its Examination and Surgeons Gloves.
  • There are 15 product codes affected.
  • The supply issue is due to manufacturers focusing on the production of 6N Nitrile Examination Gloves and other high volume products.
  • This has reduced the number of production slots available for the more specialist gloves.

Impact:      

  • The affected product codes are currently available whilst stock lasts, once the stock is depleted the product codes will be unavailable to order.
  • Potential indirect alternative products are available to order through our online catalogue.
  • Please see our Downloads ▼ section to refer to the product listing for further information on the affected product codes.
  • The supply issue is anticipated to be resolved by the end of April 2022.

Next Steps:   

  • Customers are advised to consider the alternative products to supplement any shortages over this period.
  • If you have any further questions, please contact your local NHS Supply Chain Customer Relationship Manager or 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.
