Suspended Products (ICN 1046)

Important Customer Notice Update

Ref: 2020/1046 ICN Number: 1046

Due to an exceptional increase in national demand for ICU products, a number of items have been suspended with immediate effect.

This is to protect stockholding and allocate volumes as determined by NHS England and NHS Improvement consumption model. It aims to ensure that trusts continue to have access to the consumables they need to provide patient care and to avoid unnecessary risks of stock shortages.

Two NPCs have been unsuspended and are now available to order:

  • One Tracheostomy Kit product – FSM4434
  • One Breathing Circuit product – FDC744.

There remain ten NPCs suspended due to ongoing high demand:

  • One Oxygen Therapy product code
  • Three Tracheostomy Tube product codes
  • Six Tracheostomy Kits product codes.

See our Downloads ▼ section for further information on the suspended product codes.

Next Steps:
If you have a clinical requirement to order any of the NPCs listed above which is a clinical necessity, please escalate this to the Consumables Group lead via the online request form.

This ICN will be updated when the affected products are reinstated and available to order, or if any additional codes are affected.
