SPS commentary:

An ‘In Use Product Safety Assessment Report’ on Fiasp by the Specialist Pharmacy Service notes that the addition of another insulin aspart product to the two already available has the potential to create further confusion in the prescribing, dispensing, and administration of these products. It summarises the safety concerns that should be considered.
