- Vyvgart (Efgartigimod)
I refer to your freedom of information request that we received on 06 January 2023. I can advise you that we have now completed the search of our records and can provide you with the following information:
Please see attached Appendix 1 - IVIgG issued to Scottish hosptals, for the breakdown by product of immunoglobulin vials distributed to NHS Scotland hospitals in each month for October, November and December 2022. Please note that we only deliver as far as the Pharmacy Distribution Centre (PDC) in Greater Glasgow and Clyde, so we do not have records of which hospitals the vials were issued to. Also, where a product does not appear, this is due to there having been no record of any vials distributed to NHS Scotland hospitals for the months requested.
I trust you will find the information of assistance and if you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact us.
If you are unhappy with any aspect of how we have dealt with your request you can make representations to us asking us to review the handling of your request.
If you require any further information please contact Associate Director Information Security & Governance, within 40 working days of the date of this correspondence.
