All patients who require an adrenaline auto-injector should now be able to obtain a device. The Department is continuing to work very closely with all the manufacturers of adrenaline auto-injectors and the supply situation is rapidly improving. We have been working very closely with the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency and NHS England over the past few months to manage this supply issue and we have issued clear guidance to patients, and their parents or caregivers, to explain the issue and what they should do, if they are having difficulties in accessing a new auto-injector device.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) have a statutory responsibility to provide services that meet the needs of local populations. If there is evidence of CCGs limiting prescriptions, and therefore rationing care, the Department expects NHS England to ensure the CCG is not breaching this statutory duty.</p><p> </p><p>Treatment and prescribing decisions should always be made by clinicians based on patients’ clinical needs. It is a matter for NHS England, working in partnership with NHS Clinical Commissioners, to support CCGs to use their prescribing resources effectively and deliver best patient outcomes from the medicines that their local population uses.</p> more like this
