As you will read in the alert sent out today,
the layout of the pouches is being altered to try to address the
high number of ampoule breakages in the pouches.


This is a short-term measure and we are
reviewing the cardiac pouch for a longer term solution but we need
to take action now to address this, as it poses a risk to both
staff and patients.


If you have any queries on this, please email
myself –
or the Medicines Team –
