Advice on getting medicines if there’s a no-deal EU exit


Like other NHS trusts the RD&E is preparing to deal with any potential consequences of a no-deal EU exit. We’re using national guidance and well-practised service continuity plans to help us minimise any potential disruption to services, in the event of a no-deal scenario.


We’d like to reassure our patients and their families that medicines and equipment will continue to be available and you do not need to stockpile any medicines or products. In the unlikely event of any shortages of specific medicines or products, your GP or pharmacist can recommend safe and effective alternatives.


As ever, our priority is to make sure we maintain safe, high quality care and services.


For more information on getting medicines in the event of a no-deal exit, please see NHS England’s clear and helpful advice and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs). For more general advice about the EU Exit, please visit the GOV.UK website.
