NHS and Brexit: Working to ensure you receive medicines and medical products
Occasionally, the NHS does experience temporary disruption to supply of some medicines. The NHS has tried-and-tested ways of making sure you get your medicines and medical products, even under difficult circumstances.
In the unlikely event your medicine is temporarily unavailable, the NHS will work with you to prescribe the best alternative. This could typically be a different brand of medicine or perhaps lower strength medicines to make up the same dose.
On rare occasions it may mean a different medicine to do the same thing, but you will make the decision with your prescriber who will be provided with all the necessary information on how best to do this. This will ensure your treatment continues as normal. The NHS, through your local GP surgery, pharmacy and/or hospital, will help you to stay informed if there are any changes.
If you are concerned, please speak to your doctor or pharmacist.
NHS England initiative ‘Working Together for Change’ (WTfC) is the project that is aimed at engaging with parent/carers and Children and Young People (CYP) (Who are in/Have CYP in Special Schools in Nottingham City and Nottinghamshire) to ascertain what is working well, what is not working well and what is important for the future.
