An Express Service is Going to Ensure that Medicines are in Good Supply after Brexit has Gone Through

The government have finally announced that they are going to setup a service that will help people to access the urgent medications that they need within 1-4 days. This is part of their contingency plan if a no-deal Brexit does go ahead and it also ensures that people are not left waiting for their medication. If you work in private nursing then you will know how important it is for people to get the medication they need and you will also know that sometimes delays happen. With Brexit well underway, it is important that measures are put into place to try and stop things like this from becoming a major issue and it’s good to see some positive movement on the horizon.

If you work in homecare or any other similar industry, then you should know that the service is going to focus on providing and delivering small medical parcels. They are going to do this on a 24-hour basis and they are also going to try and move to additional pallet quantities too. This is going to be done on either a four or two day basis. The service is going to follow up regarding potential concerns about the disruption to the medical supply industry and this is going to be available to the entire UK. The majority of goods will be of course, standard medicines and the procurement exercise is part of the government move to try and support continuity and even supply. The contract is going to run for 12 months and they are also going to have another 12 months of an extension too. The service is going to help those who need an extra level of precaution or preparation.
