URGENT (Scotland): The adrenaline auto-injectors 150mcg protocol has been revised with immediate effect

09 Nov 2018

A revised interim protocol for dispensing all brands of adrenaline auto-injectors (AAIs) 150mcg has been published by the Scottish Government NHS Circular PCA (P)(2018) 16.

The revised protocol, effective immediately, has been released because current stock levels of AAI are sufficient to ensure that every patient has access at least two AAIs.

Due to the backlog of patients awaiting new AAIs, supplies may be limited until the end of 2018.

Pharmacists should implement the revised protocol with immediate effect.
