Tf Chan, CNWL’s Chief Pharmacist, says

“We have had assurance from the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) that measures are in place to ensure medicines and vaccines will still be available and protected against any supply disruptions. 

Please do not ask your doctor to write longer duration for your prescriptions. Unnecessary stockpiling puts more pressure on the pharmacy supply chain and can risk the availability of medicines more widely. Please continue to order prescriptions as normal.”
