News on Supply of Somatuline Autogel

As discussions over the UK exit from the European Community intensify concerns have been expressed about the post-Brexit supply of some drugs used in the treatment of NETs.  The Trust recently contacted Ipsen to ask about ongoing supplies , and this is what they said:

Ipsen is advanced in its preparations for Brexit and the potential scenarios and challenges that this may introduce. The utmost priority is to ensure there is no disruption to patient supply of medicines. With one of our medicines manufactured in the UK and distributed to over 80 territories worldwide this remains our priority for patients in the UK, EU and beyond. We take this responsibility seriously and have been preparing for the event of a “hard Brexit” or “no deal” scenario since September 2016. We’ve taken steps to secure additional supply where necessary, in addition to being proactive in other ways to ensure there is no disruption to patients.
