Glaxo Wellcome UK Ltd is recalling some Ventolin Accuhalers because of a manufacturing issue which means that a small number of units may not be delivering the full number of doses.
It is only the 60 dose pack size with lot numbers 786G and 754P that are affected. These devices have an expiry date of May 2019.
We have not dispensed any of these devices, during the affected period, from the surgery dispensary but patients may have received them from a community pharmacy or via the respiratory team.
If patients have any of the affected accuhalers they should be returned to the practice or a local pharmacy where they will be replaced immediately with an accuhaler with a different lot number.
If you have any concerns or further questions please contact the surgery on 01451 830625 or your local pharmacist.
