19.09.19 – Medicines Supply in the event of No Deal Brexit

Getting your medicines if there’s a ‘no-deal’ Brexit

The government is working closely with the NHS and suppliers to help to ensure medicines and medical products continue to be available for patients if there is a ‘no deal’ Brexit.

Get prescriptions as normal

Please keep ordering your repeat prescriptions and taking your medicines as normal. It is unnecessary to change how you order and take your medicines.

It’s important you don’t ask for more medicines than you normally need, doing so risks pressure on availability of medicines for other people.
