HDA UK Media And Political Bulletin – 5 June 2017

Media Summary

General Election 2017: Getting a Brexit deal that works for the NHS
The Nuffield Trust

The Nuffield Trust May 2017 briefing covers the findings from an Ipsos MORI poll showing the public see the NHS and leaving the European Union (EU) as the two most serious issues facing Britain. It stresses that it is in the interests of British patients to remain part of a European market for medicines, so that new products are introduced in Britain early and the NHS can draw supplies from across the continent. This will require a deal which enables the UK to continue to work in close alignment with the European medicines regulator. Following a briefing from the HDA, the report mentions the Association in relation to the depth of supplies available to the NHS and the benefits of the ‘parallel trade’ system for medicines. The full report can be read here.

From Factory to Pharmacy

As part of our mission to build awareness, understanding and appreciation of the vital importance of the healthcare distribution sector, we developed an infographic explaining the availability of medicines. It identifies the factors that can impact drug supply, as well as the measures that HDA members undertake day in, day out to help mitigate the risks of patients not receiving their medicines.
