Covid-19: We talk to BBC News

Recognition for you

We’ve told BBC News that medicine stocks are secure amid the covid-19 crisis and are urging patients not buy more than they need when visiting their local pharmacy.

Some of the key issues you’ve told us you’re facing were highlighted through a visit to a pharmacy in Greater Manchester, where RPS member Marc Borson spoke about Personal Protective Equipment and medicines shortages.

Sandra urged patients not to panic buy their medicines and to think of others, highlighting that pharmacists are working hard to make sure that everyone can get them ‘in due course’.
