star this property answer text <p>The Department is doing everything appropriate to prepare for leaving the European Union. We want to reassure patients that our plans should ensure the uninterrupted supply of medicines and medical products once we have left the EU.</p><p>The sustainability of the National Health Service is an absolute priority for the Government. We recognise that suppliers may incur additional storage costs for stockpiling medicines or switching to air freight as part of preparations for a potential ‘no deal’ EU exit. We have been working closely with industry to minimise costs and support medical suppliers taking part in the contingency programme.</p><p>We are also clear that in any negotiations on future trade agreements, we could not agree to any proposals on pricing or access that would put NHS finances at risk or reduce clinician and patient choice.</p> more like this
