Changes to portable sharps container

Sharps Box

Following an evaluation of the Sharps Container carried within the responder bag, the Product Alignment Group has recommended a change of product from the existing oval shaped container to that of a rectangle shaped container. 

This container (see picture, right) sits more securely in the mesh netting of the bag and is as easily used as the previous version.

Clinicians are asked to ensure the container is dated at point of issue and disposed of at a three-month period.
