Voluntary Suspension - PFC - Protein Fractionation Centre
Following an inspection by the MHRA, shortcomings in quality assurance processes are noticed and consequently, production at the Protein Fractionation Centre at Liberton, Scotland, is voluntarily suspended.
The NHS in Scotland is now expected to have to obtain the required products from alternative sources.
Closure of PFC - Protein Fractionation Centre, Scotland
The PFC at Liberton, Edinburgh, is deemed "no longer viable" following a strategic review of the plasma products manufacturing division of the SNBTS. Due to the move away from plasma-derived blood clotting factors and the risks of vCJD, plasma is to be obtained from sources outside of the UK.
Any required plasma products will probably need to be imported.
