The transition to the new 'NRFit' series of connectors for neuraxial devices began in 2017.

There's now an information resource at the NHS Improvement website, which individuals and organisations should use as their first point of reference.

The NHS has also issued an important clarification, pointing out that the 11 December 2017 'deadline' in the original alert about the transition is the deadline for beginning the process of transition and not the deadline for completing the transition.

Clinicians can download a case study of local practice of implementation of new neuraxial connectors. This information may help individuals and organisations to smooth the transition process.

Unfortunately it's not possible to provide information here about the current availablity of NRFit equipment from the various manufacturers. Individuals and organisations should seek this information from their usual procurement sources or industry contacts.

The previous AAGBI webpages relating to non-Luer connectors have now been archived.
