We understand that psychiatric medicines are vitally important to many people in this country. Our contingency plans aim to ensure that the supply of psychiatric medicine and other essential medicines to patients is not disrupted in all European Union exit scenarios, including in the event we exit the EU without a deal.

We are confident that, if everyone does what they need to do, the supply of medicines will be uninterrupted in the event of exiting the EU without a deal.

The Department is working closely with trade bodies, product suppliers, the health and care system in England, the devolved administrations and Crown Dependencies, to make detailed plans to ensure the continuation of the supply of medicines to the whole of the United Kingdom in the event of a ‘no deal’ EU exit.
