There are current medication shortages across many groups of drugs. Many drugs we rely on every day come from China, or depend on ingredients that are made there, and the coronavirus outbreak has disrupted manufacturing.
Please do not over-order drugs. We understand everyone’s concerns but we now need to move to monthly prescribing. We can send three months’ worth of tokens to a chemist but only one month’s supply of any drug will be issued by the community pharmacy at a time.
This will help to ensure that there is enough supply for all of us in the next few difficult months. Please think of others and request medicines responsibly.
