Temporary Interruption to distribution of GSK products

Temporary Interruption to distribution of GSK products

October 30, 2018

To facilitate the transition from a Direct to Pharmacy (DTP) model to a Reduced Wholesaler Model (RWM), GSK have placed a hold on the distribution of their products between 2pm on the 29th October and the morning of the 1st November.

Please note that any orders transmitted during this time will not be placed, and pharmacies should place an order again from the 1st November.

This follows the recent announcement that Phoenix was selected by GSK as one of three wholesalers to distribute GSK’s prescription medicines to community pharmacies throughout the UK.

Normal supply via AAH, Alliance Healthcare and Phoenix is expected to resume on the 1st November.

Please contact GSK if you are faced with a medically critical situation requiring stock on 0800 221 441
