Medicine deliveries continue despite fuel shortage

Speaking about media reports today that there is uncertainty about deliveries of medicines due to the fuel crisis, RPS President Professor Claire Anderson said:

“Patient care is the top priority for pharmacists and their teams. Pharmacies are still getting deliveries of medicines and people should order and collect their prescription in the normal way. As usual, pharmacists are working with patients to ensure they get the medicines they need. We’re not aware that the problems with fuel supplies are stopping patients getting their medicines. If you have any concerns then please speak to your local pharmacist and their team who will be able to help and reassure you.”
