Intravenous Immunoglobulins

Before requesting Intravenous Immunoglobulins (IVIg) refer to the Department of Health’s ‘Immunoglobulin Guidelines and Demand Management Plan’ which can be found at http://www.ivig.nhs.uk/documents/DemandManagementPoster.pdf. This describes the conditions which can be effectively treated with IVIg’s.

Requests for IVIg can only be obtained if an Immunoglobulin Request Form is completed by a Registrar or Consultant and sent to the Blood Transfusion Laboratory (Fax 01392-402915).
