All nursery managers should immediately carry out an audit of their children’s medicines today after the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) issued an alert regarding Anapen adrenaline injectors. These medicines are used to treat severe allergic reactions.
They are advising people who suffer from severe allergic reactions to see their GP or clinic as soon as possible to discuss alternative products after Anapen was precautionary recalled by the licence holder Lincoln Medical Limited. Therefore, if you have any children prescribed with any of these products, you must alert their parents as soon as possible to replace them.
If you use our Medilert software, simply search for ‘Anapen’ from the dashboard and it will return a list of all your children with this medicine.
