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.

A further 4 product codes have been suspended and are now unavailable to order through our online catalogue.

There remain 37 NPCs suspended due to ongoing high demand:

  • 15 Tracheostomy Tube product codes
  • 19 Tracheostomy Kits product codes.
  • 3 Blood Collection Set product codes.

See our Downloads ▼ section for further information on the affected product codes. The newly suspended codes are highlighted in the product listing.

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.
