NovoFine 12mm needles to be discontinued

The manufacturer of NovoFine insulin needles has written to healthcare professionals advising that the 12mm 28G needle will be discontinued with effect from November 2013.

The motivation for this decision is to encourage use of their newer needles with improved design features. Possible alternatives in the range are:

  • NovoTwist 5mm 32G
  • NovoFine 6mm 31G
  • NovoFine 8mm 30G
  • NovoFine Autocover 8mm 30G

It should be noted that 12mm needles remain available from other manufacturers.

Action: Clinicians should be aware of the product being discontinued. It may be prudent to run clinical system searches to identify any patients who are currently prescribed this product to allow an alternative to be arranged.
