  • The supplier Vygon (UK) Ltd has informed us of a supply issue with its National Procedure Packs products.
  • There is one product affected:
    • EVS562 – Procedure Pack Standard Umbilical Placement Pack.
  • The supply issue is due to component shortages.
  • Vygon has confirmed there is currently a production delay due to a supply issue with the Needle Holder (Mayo Hegar 14cm) within this pack.


  • The affected product code is currently unavailable to order.
  • There are currently no identified alternative products available to order through our online catalogue.
  • Vygon has confirmed that they can supply a Mayo Hegar 12cm Needle Holder as an alternative by 30 November 2022. Including this component, will mean the pack is then complete, allowing for production and sales to resume.
  • See our Downloads section to access the product listing for further information on the affected product codes.
  • A list of all the components within the pack has been provided by Vygon. Trusts can view the list of components and order / pick these separately where required. See our Downloads section.

Next Steps:

  • NHS Supply Chain is seeking to find a resolution with Vygon (UK) Ltd to ensure continued supply through the framework commitments.
  • In the meantime, customers should consider other solutions such as picking components from the shelf which they may already have in stock.
  • When reviewing alternative solutions, considerations such as clinical compliance, compatibility with clinical needs and cost should be taken into account.
  • 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.
