Component recall process

From time to time we have to recall components to ensure patient safety. We take continuous feedback from hospitals and review our internal processes to improve the recall process.

NHSBT Component recall process flowcharts show the the interactions and processes between hospitals and NHSBT during any recall. 

Stock Incident Management (SIM) Notification show the recall paperwork stating the unit(s) involved and the reason code for the recall.

Recall reasons, advice and information give additional information on the recall reason, any action required if the unit(s) have been transfused along with information on the expected follow up information NHSBT will provide.
