Alima Batchelor, head of policy at PDA said: “Whilst these shortages cannot be ascribed to Brexit, they do show the need for concerted action to ensure that leaving the EU will not exacerbate an already unacceptable level of drug shortages.”
What’s the problem?
Pharmacists have warned of shortages of every major type of medicine – including HRT, antidepressants and blood pressure pills.
Drugs for diabetes, epilepsy and skin problems are among the treatments in short supply, along with common contraceptives, a survey suggests.

Isn’t it actually an argument that we want to leave the current regulatory system?
