A brief response to no deal Brexit and community pharmacies

Friday, August 24, 2018

Following the release of the guidance from the Government on how to prepare for a no deal Brexit, we would like to reiterate the official advice that community pharmacies should not stockpile medicines. Any reference to stockpiling is in relation to pharmaceutical manufacturers only.

Here at CPS we will be engaging closely with the Scottish Government on how best to support our members in ensuring that their medical supply routes are maintained. We will be engaging in consultations, such as the forthcoming MHRA consultation on the regulation of medicines.
