Medicine shortages

 

Welsh Government issued Medicines Shortages letters are uploaded to the Public Health Alerts portal: https://nww2.nphs.wales.nhs.uk/contacts.nsf

The NHS Wales medicines shortages log can be accessed via this link: https://nhswales365.sharepoint.com/sites/SSP_Intranet_PCS/SitePages/Medicines-Shortages.aspx

Please note that these links can only be accessed using an NHS Wales intranet accessible PC.

The shortages log:

  • Lists all shortage letters issued;
  • Provides up to date information on the current status of each shortage;
  • Links to relevant clinical or procurement advice for support managing the shortage; and
  • Will be updated weekly on a Thursday

The Specialist Pharmacy Service (SPS) medicines supply tool summaries information from Medicines Shortage Notices and provides updates on anticipated re-supply dates. This tool is only available to registered users on the SPS website with an NHS email address.
