December meeting of the Community Pharmacy Brexit Forum
Following the Community Pharmacy Brexit Forum hosted by PSNC last Monday, were NHSE&I gave updates on primary and community care, the key messages were to:
- Prescribe and dispense as normal;
- Ensure you are familiar with the latest information on supply disruption;
- Encourage patients to take out travel insurance before travelling to the EU; and
- Encourage staff who are EU citizens to register with the EU Settlement Scheme.
There was also an update on the work of the Medicines Shortages Response Group, and the DHSC provided a comprehensive update on the multi-layered approach to maintaining continuity of supply of medicines.
