Stockpiling warnings: Fix the bigger problem

By Alexander Humphries* Whatever you think about Brexit, it is going to do nothing to improve the medicines supply chain. Every other business sector in the UK is being advised to make preparations for a no-deal situation, but in community pharmacy we have our hands tied behind our backs because we’ve been told not to stockpile.

I’ve had not one, not two but three letters warning me that consequences will follow for anyone daring to disobey the teacher on this issue.

I watched her blood pressure rise as she began a polemic against every “foreign influence” on the country and society. This was really uncomfortable to watch because the poor lady I was serving really wasn’t launching into a political speech, rather simply making idle conversation.
