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.

One Tracheostomy tube product code has been suspended and is unavailable to order.

Two products codes have been removed from suspension and are available to order through our online catalogue:

  • FDF1421 – Tracheostomy Tube product code
  • FTC172 – Breathing Filter product code.

There remain eight NPCs suspended due to ongoing high demand:

  • One Oxygen Therapy product code
  • Seven Tracheostomy Tube or Kit product codes.

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