Fentanyl injection: Resolved

Fentanyl injection 50 mcg per ml, 2 ml ampoules (Boucher and Muir) have been resupplied.

There is currently no shortage of fentanyl in New Zealand. 

While there is no current shortage, we ask that clinicians do not stockpile fentanyl. Stockpiling affects equitable access to stock across New Zealand and makes it very difficult for suppliers and PHARMAC to forecast future demand.
