Dalteparin (Fragmin®) Shortage

There is a current supply shortage of all strengths of dalteparin (Fragmin®). Effective immediately patients should be reviewed and where appropriate switched from dalteparin (Fragmin®) to an alternative low molecular weight heparin called Inhixa® (enoxaparin biosimilar). For the majority of patients, switching to Inhixa® is safe when switched to an equivalent dose.

What is your responsibility during the switch?

  • Doctors – review all prescriptions for dalteparin, including those pre-printed on pathway charts, unless the patient meets one of the exclusion criteria, cross off dalteparin and prescribe Inhixa® by brand
  • Pharmacists – review all prescriptions for dalteparin, unless the patient meets one of the exclusion criteria, cross off dalteparin and chart Inhixa® by brand supported by  the enablement policy
  • Nurses – identify patients that still have dalteparin prescribed and alert doctor or pharmacist

See updated Quick Reference VTE guide on desktop and SPACE for dosing information.


It is expected that all medicines prescribed in the Guildford and Waverley Area will be in accordance with this Formulary.  

Introduction of new medicines, and changes to traffic light classification of existing medicines, will be managed via the Drugs and Therapeutics Committee of the Royal Surrey County Hospital and the Medicines Optimisation Group at Guildford and Waverley CCG.  

If there is a need to prescribe a non-formulary medicine please contact the Royal Surrey Pharmacy or the CCG Medicines Management Team before initiating or recommending the medicine to the patient or other prescribers.
