From 1st December 2019, CovaWound™ Foam and CovaWound™ Foam (Border) will no longer be available to order via the NHS Supply Chain. NHS Supply Chain operates a sourcing strategy across all contractual frameworks and following a recent initiative (the National Contract Price process (NCP)) the standard foam dressings category has restricted suppliers available from 1st December 2019.
If you are currently using CovaWound™ Foam dressings or any of the other supplier brands delisted, you may see a price pressure with the NCP available products. We suggest that you request an impact analysis from your local SCCL account manager.
Please note that this change does not affect CovaWound™ Foam Heel, which remains available to purchase through NHS Supply Chain. Additionally, the CovaWound™ Foam range continues to be available to order directly through Bunzl Healthcare of via Drug Tariff.
For further information on ordering CovaWound™ Foam including product order codes, sizes and Drug Tariff pricing please refer to the CovaWound™ Foam FAQs information sheet. The FAQs information sheet also includes information on clinical indications and product properties. If you have any further queries or questions, please contact us.
