Previous Update: 11/06/2018

Change:

  • The supplier GAMA Healthcare has informed us of a temporary supply issue with Disinfectant Wipe per bucket (260mm x 260mm, VJT190) and Disinfectant Wipe per refill pack, (260mm x 260mmm, VJT192).
  • Over the Chinese New Year the manufacturing plant had a shortage of staff which has resulted in delayed production and the current supply issue.
  • GAMA healthcare has identified steps to address and prevent this reoccurrence with the manufacturing plant, such as creating staffing contingency plans to avoid shortage over holiday periods.

Impact:

  • Stocks of product codes VJT190 and VFT192 are running low and we anticipate they will become unavailable to order before stock replenishment.
  • New stock of the products is expected week commencing 25 June 2018.
  • Indirect alternatives are available to order through the online catalogue. For more information, please refer to the product listing below.
  • The potential alternatives are same brand and impregnated with the same liquid, however the alternative wipes may have a different dimension, weight and pack size.

Next Steps:

  • Customers are advised to log onto our website to view the potential alternative products.
  • We will share any further updates with you regarding the supply disruption and the anticipated date that normal supply will resume.
  • If you have 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 organisations’ use of any potential alternative products you may choose.
