Manufacturer Agreements


CARDENE order blackout period 17-18 May – LXO RWA


We are pleased to announce that, as of 19 May 2022, Alliance Healthcare UK will become the only wholesaler to supply CARDENE to all pharmacies, hospitals and dispensing doctors in England, Scotland and Wales. Northern Ireland is not included in this agreement. 

CARDENE has been acquired by Laboratoire XO from Astellas. Following the morning deliveries on Tuesday 17 May Astellas was cease Direct to Pharmacy sales for these products and there will be a transition to a Reduced Wholesaler Model with Laboratoire XO. As a result of this transition there will be a blackout period for customer orders of these products between 17 – 18 May.


Final orders for these products will be your standard cut-off time on the evening of Monday 16 May for AM delivery on the Tuesday 17 May. Customers will be able to place orders with Alliance Healthcare for these products from Thursday AM 19 May for delivery from PM 19 May.

From 19 May purchases of these lines will continue to arrive as part of your usual Alliance Healthcare delivery service and, if purchased in isolation, they will not be subject to Alliance Healthcare’s low spend surcharge. To receive these products, you can simply order from Alliance Healthcare in your usual manner. These products will be available on a same day delivery service.

If you would like to discuss these changes in more detail, please do not hesitate to contact your Alliance Healthcare Account Manager.
