Fax machines and associated consumables were removed from the NHS Supply Chain catalogue in January 2019, and we continue to support the National Health Service with digital transformation to remove the need for outdated technology, including fax machines.

We have not requested further information on fax machine usage from trusts during the COVID-19 outbreak, in order to reduce the burden on systems.
