CIVA@IP5 is a medicines preparation service operating from our national distribution warehouse. Set up as a rapid delivery project in response to COVID-19 it supplies injectable medicines in ready to use format direct to our Critical Care Units across Wales. This ensures continuity of supply, quality and safety, and frees up nurse time to focus on patient care.
The service is funded by Welsh Government and operates under the governance of the Shared Services Partnership Committee. We are working with stakeholders to map out the future of this service, and how it can best support patient care as we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic.
