Shortage of Epipens in the UK

19-Sep-2018

You may be aware of the current shortage in the UK of Epipens, especially the Epipen Junior which is having an effect on all stocks of auto injectors in the UK.   As a result BSACI and our partner patient organisations have been working with Jacqueline Cornish, National Clinical Director for Children at NHSE, to draft clinical advice for both prescribers and patients to help inform the NHSE response to the situation.
 
Attached is the advice that has been issued by the Department of Health, based on the advice we provided.
