Health Secretary Matt Hancock has urged the public not to stockpile medication


Matt Hancock ensured that the Department of Health and Social Care is currently considering enough drug supply for NHS patients as the top priority in the wake of Brexit. “The point is that people, individuals don’t need to stockpile, hospitals don’t need to stockpile, pharmacies don’t need to stockpile—the pharmaceutical companies are doing the stockpiling and they will fulfill their contracts in the normal way,” said Hancock, adding that there is a lot of work to be done, but the proper drug supply may be reality if all Brits show that they are committed to it. The pharmaceutical industry are responsible for delivering the drugs that people need post-Brexit exactly as they are now. They are doing a huge amount of work to ensure that there’s adequate stockpiles in case of a disruption at the border. And we are prioritizing medicines should there be a disruption at the border. But there is a lot of work needed to be done,” said the conservative MP from Suffolk
