Conotrane Cream is Hertfordshire & West Essex  Integrated Care System ( HWEICS ) first line barrier cream ICS wound care products formulary. Due to a change in manufacturer and subsequent availability issues Conotrane cream was removed from GP prescribing systems and could not be prescribed for several months resulting in more expensive second line alternatives being prescribed. Conotrane cream (500g) is now readily available and  listed again  (the 100g pack size has been discontinued).  GPs are being asked to where possible revert back to prescribing Conotrane cream.

Please check prescriptions before they are dispensed to ensure only one barrier cream is being prescribed.
