Previous Update: 24/08/2018

Change:

  • Banner, a distributor on the Office Supplies framework, has informed us of a temporary supply issue with paper bags manufactured by Dempson.
  • The four product codes affected are:
    MTA121 (Bag paper 255 x 370 mm 7.55l gusseted white printed soiled dressings in yellow)
    MTA131 (Bag paper 180 x 315 mm 3.80l gusseted white with yellow stripe printed in black soiled dressings)
    MTA132 (Bag paper 175 x 300 mm 3.41l gusseted white printed used dressings in red)
    WYF237 (Bag paper 260 x 360 x 520mm 12.7kg capacity brown).
  • The temporary supply issue is due to manufacturing delays. Dempson's products are manufactured in Bosnia where the factory has faced some manufacturing issues. Consequently there has been an effect on stock production and shipping to the UK.

Impact:

  • The four affected product codes are currently unavailable to order.
  • MVM028 (Bag polythene patients locker with adhesive strip 265 x 430 + 40mm (10 x 17 inch) 13 micron white) is a potential indirect alternative product available to order through our online catalogue for all four product codes.
  • Please refer to the product listing below for further information on the affected product codes.
  • The temporary supply issue is anticipated to be resolved by 10 September 2018.

Next Steps:

  • Customers are advised to log in to our website to view the potential alternative products.
  • MVM028 is a potential indirect alternative but there are a range of other polythene bags available, which could be used. Please check your trust policy before considering these additional lines.
  • Any further questions, please contact your local NHS Supply Chain Account Manager or Customer Service Advisor.

Whilst we have consulted our clinical team, please note that due to the clinical nature of these alternative products we do advise you to consult your own clinical experts to ensure suitability for your organisation's use of these products.
