Keith Willett has written to trusts to provide details of the National Supply Disruption Response (NSDR). Processes and systems already exist for responding to serious supply disruption events for medical products and you should continue to use these channels. However, to enhance this capability at a national level, these processes will be coordinated through NSDR systems set up by the Department of Health and Social Care as part of its Operational Response Centre. The NSDR systems and operations will monitor the supply situation and coordinate actions to address supply disruption incidents. A separate communication for CCGs will follow shortly as the escalation points are slightly different.
