There is currently a supply issue affecting EpiPen and EpiPen Junior. This is expected to continue for the remainder of 2018.
EpiPen is an adrenaline auto-injector device used in emergencies to treat very serious allergic reactions to insect stings/bites, foods, drugs or other substances.
The shortage may mean some of your pupils start using a different adrenaline auto-injector that you are less familiar with and/or carrying fewer devices than they normally do. You may have already started to notice this.
The documents below have been provided to advise schools on the current situation and actions they should take.
Please ensure this information is shared with relevant staff/colleagues.
