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.

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

The Stock Incident Management (SIM) notification shows the recall paperwork stating the unit(s) involved and the reason code for the recall.

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