Medical devices and clinical consumables

Letter from Matt Hancock to suppliers of medical devices and clinical consumables about contingency planning for a no-deal Brexit.



The Secretary of State for Health and Social Care has written to all suppliers to update them on the department’s contingency measures. This includes increasing stock levels at a national level.

The letter advises that the NHS Supply Chain has begun contacting suppliers who import products from other EU countries to establish what they are doing to make sure they can continue providing products in a no-deal scenario.
