Diamorphine 5mg and 10mg injection shortage

23rd May 2018

Accord Pharmaceuticals has manufacturing difficulties with 5mg and 10mg diamorphine injection. The other UK supplier (Wockhardt) only has a small stock and is not expected to be able to keep up with the extra demand. It is expected that further supplies will be available from the 28 June 2018.

Diamorphine 30mg, 100mg and 500mg are not affected.

NHS organisations are strongly requested to order as normal and not to stockpile, as this will exacerbate the situation.
