March 2016 – RE: ENFit Transition Adaptors
As part of the transition phase we wanted to update you and also remind you of the communication channels should you have any queries regards the ENFit transition adaptors.
If you experience any incidents with any adaptors in addition to internal reporting mechanisms, it is important to follow the actions recommended by the manufacturers themselves. Specific queries should be addressed to the customer support line of the device provider and/or the individual patient’s nutrition specialist healthcare provider.
This also acts as a reminder that MHRA encourages all incidents related to ENFit to be reported via the MHRA website.
Meanwhile, more information on ENFit can be found below.

Calling PENG members – do you work in the area of learning disabilities?
Over the last few years I have been involved in the care of a number of LD patients around the country with complex gastro/nutrition issues and have become increasingly concerned at the lack of knowledge and interest among GPs and acute health care professionals alike in relation to the management of their physiological challenges.
Simon Gabe, the new chairman of BAPEN agrees there may be a case for a special interest group under the BAPEN umbrella and he suggested having a stand at the BAPEN meeting in November to canvas support.
In preparation, it would be good to hear about any examples of good practice, any audit data on the scale of the problem and any other relevant info. Also if there are any dietitians with expertise in this area and/or you know of any clinicians who may be interested in being involved, eg in neurology, gastroenterology, immunology, paediatrics, psychiatry or any other fields with expertise and an interest in dealing with the complex physiological challenges specific to Cerebral Palsy, Autism and other LD patients please could you let me know.
Thanks, With regards, Lynn Harbottle
