Do you use an epipen? – National supply issues October 2018

Do you use an epipen or epipen junior to treat anaphylaxis? If so, please be aware that currently there is a national shortage of supply. The Department of Health has issued more restrictive guidance to GP surgeries, pharmacies and others on what may be dispensed, and some of the guidance on when to consider an epipen ‘out of date’ have been relaxed.
