HPS Pharmacies wish to advise that TIMENTIN (ticarcillin/clavulanate, GSK) 3.1g x 10 vials Aust R 11165 is currently unavailable from suppliers.
HPS Pharmacies still hold a limited supply for the benefit of our clients, and GlaxoSmithKline Australia has reserved their remaining supplies for distribution to patients without alternative treatment options.
In the event that your HPS Pharmacy is unable to supply sufficient TIMENTIN for your patient needs, the prescribing physician may forward a written request to GSK via HPS Pharmacies to enable the release of stock. Approved orders will be shipped directly to your HPS Pharmacy.
GSK has advised that they are expecting new supplies in the first week of October 2012.
Please retain this notice in a prominent position, including other related business units, until supplies return to normal. Should you require further information regarding this matter, please do not hesitate to contact your pharmacist at HPS Pharmacies or GSK Customer Service Department on (03) 9721 8600.
Information regarding expected dates for supply may vary subject to delays which are out of our control. HPS Pharmacies does not accept responsibility for such changes but will endeavour to keep our clients updated as information is made available from drug manufacturers or wholesalers.
