The British Nuclear Medicine Society has worked with the Royal College of Radiologists and the UK Radiopharmacy Group to produce practical guidance to help nuclear medicine teams plan radioisotope work in case of a no-deal Brexit.
Practical advice for radiopharmacy and nuclear medicine services in the event of a no-deal Brexit outlines industry updates on supplier preparedness for tracer and therapeutic radioisotope supply in the event of no-deal, and urges clinicians to liaise directly with their suppliers for information on individual products.
It contains advice to help services produce individual risk assessments, emphasising the importance of communication and supply networking between hospitals.
The guidance contains practical advice on procurement changes and considerations for workload planning and case prioritisation depending on supply alterations.
The planning document also lists product alternatives and substitutions for particular imaging procedures, as well as key considerations for oncology teams faced with irregular supply.
Press Statement on Euratom and supply of medical isotopes following Brexit from the British Nuclear Medicine Society, supported by the Royal College of Radiologists and Royal College of Physicians
On Wednesday 12 July there was a parliamentary debate on the implications for the UK on withdrawing from the Euratom Treaty. Since 1957 the Euratom framework has enshrined the regulation and safeguards for the transportation and use of radioactive materials and governs UK international nuclear cooperation agreements with European and third party countries, including Canada, Japan and the USA. Withdrawing from Euratom will affect the arrangements for the supply and use of radioactive isotopes to industry, power generation, academia and medicine.
