SUPPLY ISSUE UPDATE PARACETAMOL TABLETS
An update on our notification of 16 November 2018.
Click here to read the PHARMAC DISPATCH dated 14 December 2018 detailing the listing of two other brands from 1 January 2019 (they may not necessarily be available) and advising the current dispensing restrictions will remain until further notice.
Paracetamol Tablets 500 mg 1000 blister pack only. Pharmacode 2296985
ProPharma/PWR will retain the original allocation level of 4 per customer per week until further notice. This is a serious issue and this is all we can do to assist and work through the supply issue.
This action is not taken lightly and will not suit all pharmacies. We realise one size does not fit all and all it takes is a phone call as below.
Indication from the supplier is that stocks will remain on allocation to wholesale until at least February 2019.
We respectfully ask all our customers to abide by the change to dispensing quantities. While inconvenient for all including patient it is an essential part of the solution.
Should you wish to discuss the allocation then please contact your local Branch Manager or Key Account Manager.
Our Customer Services team are not permitted to over-ride the allocations under any circumstances.
Paracetamol Tab 500 mg 1000 bottle Pharmacode 2296911 are not affected by the allocation. We recommended that in all Robotics and Medico type packaging and dispensing you utilise the bottle pack to help alleviate the issue.
Further information will be provided as it comes to hand.
We thank you in anticipation of your ongoing support.
