PSNC and BMA issue statement on medicines supply

December 17, 2020

PSNC and the British Medical Association (BMA) have today issued a statement on medicines supply ahead of the end of the Brexit Transition Period. The joint statement indicates the united position across primary care.

Both organisations highlight the significant amount of work undertaken by the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) and NHS England and NHS Improvement (NHSE&I), and stress the importance of collaborative working to maintain patient care to their members. Much of the statement reinforces Government messaging, particularly on the need to avoid local stockpiling of medicines and discouraging patients from over-ordering themselves.

The statement goes on to say that DHSC and industry stakeholders will monitor the situation going forwards. However, if medicine supply is disrupted, “GP practice staff and community pharmacy teams will need to work together to make sure that all patients continue to have access to the medicines they need, when they need them”.
