NOTIFICATIONS

MSD appoint Alloga and Alliance Healthcare as its exclusive distribution partners

From 1st February 2022, Alloga will exclusively manage the warehousing and logistics (pre wholesaler) and Alliance Healthcare Limited will be the wholesaler for MSD products across the UK, ensuring MSD vaccines and medicines get to those who need them.

The new distribution partnership with Alliance Healthcare is the result of a competitive and thorough tender process which was conducted to enable MSD to continually meets the needs of patients and those who care for them by ensuring timely distribution of products to hospitals, pharmacies, GP surgeries and clinics. The new partnership includes a strong network of dispensing points across the UK – all of which will optimise support for patients and ensure that those who need MSD’s vaccines and products can receive them.


Information about OncoTICE® (2-8 X 108 CFU Tice® BCG) powder for suspension

Due to increased global demand and as the primary supplier of OncoTICE®/(TICE® /BCG) in the UK, MSD has been experiencing supply constraints. To minimise disruption to patient care, available supply of OncoTICE®/(TICE® /BCG) is proportionally allocated across countries.

MSD are working with the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) and relevant professional organisations to ensure equitable distribution of the medicine across NHS.
