Canada-Wide Iron Shortage
Hey everyone and welcome to Mainline’s first blog post. The launch of our new site is quite timely given there is currently a nation-wide shortage of IV Iron. Unfortunately, there is only one supplier in Canada so when they are unable to produce iron, shortages quickly develop across the country.
Fortunately, we are still well supplied and are happy to be an attractive alternative for patients needing iron urgently. If you are a patient requiring iron, please let your physician know that we are an option for referral. If you are a family physician or specialist with a patient needing IV Iron urgently, please feel free to download our referral form or get in contact with us with any questions you might have.
It looks like production is set to resume in a couple of weeks and the critical shortage should be alleviated shortly after.
