Socket insert covers “banned” by NHS?

As discussed in our previous article on this subject, the use of socket covers that “plug” into UK 13 A (BS 1363) socket outlets may not always improve safety.

On 30 April 2016, the NHS in Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and England published an Estate Facilities Alert, which says that electrical socket inserts should not be used, nor should they be supplied for use in any home or residence, and, further, that any in use should be removed and safely disposed of.

The technical bulletin is freely available here: https://www.cas.dh.gov.uk/ViewandAcknowledgment/ViewAlert.aspx?AlertID=102494

The Fatally Flawed web-site discusses the issues that can be encountered using certain safety socket covers with BS 1363 socket outlets.
