Advice about safety net elements changes for 1 September 2017

Page last updated: 7 August 2017

Changes to RITUXIMAB item codes 4615X and 7259C were made in September 2017 to change the safety net elements from 4 to 20 days. The current data is shown correctly in the September 2017 XML.

However, there was an error in producing the September 2017 XML that has caused the previous safety net element for prescribing rules 4615X and 7259C not to link to the current elements. In order for the XML to pass validation, these previous elements have been removed from the XML. This means that software that relies on previous elements to flag where data has changed will not show these safety-net elements as having been changed.
