on 24th August 2017, the MHRA (Medicines & Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency) issued a Medical Device Alert, following a Field Safety Notice issued in July by Novo Nordisk - the manufacturer of NovoPen 5 and NovoPen Echo.
The practice has written to all patients who have been prescribed these products since July 2014 as a precaution, although the likelihood of having an affected device is minimal.
A copy of the notice from Novo Nordisk is available here to download.
