You will all be aware that the Brexit deadline is fast approaching with the date to leave the European Union being the 31st October 2019. There has been some worry about the continued availability of medicines and medical devices after Brexit.

The government is working directly with suppliers and pharmaceutical companies to make sure there is a continued supply of medicines, medical devices and clinical consumables when the UK leaves the EU.

Please do not stockpile any medicines, medical devices or clinical consumables. Stockpiling could cause shortages in other areas and put other service users at risk.
