The Department is working very closely with all the manufacturers of adrenaline auto-injectors, the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency, NHS England, and others to try to resolve these issues and improve the situation as quickly as possible. Supplies of adult adrenaline auto-injectors are currently available and sufficient to meet demand. Additional supplies of junior adrenaline auto-injectors have arrived this week and the situation is expected to improve further in the coming weeks.
