These plans include:</p><p>- Procuring additional capacity on alternative routes (away from the short straits) for goods to continue to come into the UK ahead EU exit;</p><p>- buffer stocks and stockpiling (where this is practical) or asking industry or the NHS Supply Chain to build up buffer stocks in the UK ahead of EU exit;</p><p>- Arrangements to deal with shortages in addition to normal shortage management routes, enabling ministers to issue serious shortage protocols to pharmacists;</p><p>- additional warehouse space for stockpiled medicines, including ambient, refrigerated and controlled drug storage;</p><p>- working with industry to improve trader readiness in preparation for the new customs procedures that will come into force on day 1 if we leave the EU without a deal; and</p><p>- changing or clarifying regulatory requirements so that companies can continue to sell their products in the UK if the UK leaves without a deal.</p><p>The Department has implemented a multi-layered approach to mitigate potential disruption to supply. No one measure is relied on at any point in time in order to support uninterrupted supply of medicines and medical products.</p>
