exp date isn't null, but text field is

Abstract

The content of this information pack has been produced following consensus from healthcare professionals across the West of Scotland and with reference to current evidence available.  Every effort has been made to ensure that the recommendations are accurate, complete and up to date.  However, it should be noted that the final responsibility lies with the individual healthcare professional carrying out the clinical procedures.

The purpose of this pack is to provide information to all health care professionals across the West of Scotland that will enable them to provide safe care and delivery of enteral tube feeding to neonates, children and young people. Adopting a consistent approach across the region will promote continuity of care for these neonates, children and young people, wherever they are cared for and reduce the potential risks associated with enteral tube feeding. Most of the information provided is relevant for all age groups.
