Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) has issued a medicine supply notification for Phenobarbital 15mg tablets (Accord)


Tier 2 – medium impact

Date of issue: 10th April 2024

  • Phenobarbital 15mg tablets (Accord) are out of stock with a resupply date yet to be confirmed.
  • Phenobarbital 15mg tablets from other manufacturers remain available and can support increased demand.

DHSC and NHSE/I have now launched an online Medicines Supply Tool, which provides up to date information about medicine supply issues. The contents of these MSNs can now be viewed on the Tool.

The Tool also details any changes to resupply dates and updates to the entries.

To access the Tool you will need  an NHS email address. Once set up and logged in, you will be able to access it online.

New shortages not listed on the SPS website, can be reported using our shortage reporting tool.
