To ask the Minister of Health, Social Services and Public Safety whether ITH Pharma supplies either total parenteral nutrition or parental nutrition to any Health and Social Care Trust.
I have been advised that of the five Health and Social Care Trusts, four purchase adult parenteral nutrition products produced by ITH Pharma either directly from them or indirectly through a third party. One Trust has advised that they also purchase paediatric parenteral nutrition products from ITH Pharma.
All the Trusts have advised that they do not purchase neonatal parenteral nutrition products either directly or indirectly from ITH Pharma.
