There is an issue with the above product in so much as it has been delisted from 1 April 2016. Pharmacode 789763

This follows notification on the 16th September 2015 that the 900gm pack was being replaced by a pack containing 840gm.  The 840gm was to be listed from 1 October 2015, Pharmacode 2489309.  No price or subsidy changes. Supply is another issue.

Due to stock levels the 900gm pack has continued to be supplied and not the 840gm as expected. Unfortunately we have no control over the release of the new packaging. Naturally the supplier does not wish to be left with unsaleable stock either.

Pharmac have been in discussion with the supplier and will be re-listing the 900gm from 1 May 2016 until 1 December 2016, to facilitate the continued partial funding and use of existing supply chain stock.

While this may not help immediately, it will from 1 May 2016. In the meantime there are ways around this issue but tread carefully.

We apologise for any inconvenience.
