Potential fault with drawing up needle packaging: please check your stores

We’ve been made aware of some potentially faulty drawing-up needles:

  • LOT code: Q1502-02NA
  • Date: 02-2020

A Datix has been logged where the drawing-up needle was reportedly missing, despite the packaging still being fully secure.

We’re asking staff to please check stores on station (particularly for this batch number) to see if this is a widespread problem. If you find needles missing, please keep the packaging and then pass it to a duty locality officer (DLO) on your station, who should then return it to stores at the earliest opportunity.

If you have any questions or concerns, the supplies team will be very happy to help you. You can contact them directly at supplies.enquiries@eastamb.nhs.uk
