Emergency arrangements will quickly be made to continue the import of drugs from the EU, or do you think 27 European nations are going to say sorry mate, we know this will kill some of your people until the paperwork regarding trade is finalised in a few months?
If that is the case I wonder why any nation would want to be part of such a vindictive club.
There is nothing to stop emergency transition arrangements being agreed within a day regarding life saving imports, just more doom talk.

Well, we certainly hope not, but the thing is predicting what we will be short of or stockpiling such in preparation seems to be going a smoothly as Brexit so far.

So if that's anything to go by i would not trust them to order enough Elastoplast nevermind live-saving drugs.

It's not doom porn sadly, they're already out of my life saving epilepsy meds. The government only started to ramp up DEFRA and medical import planning to 24 hours a day as of this morning. They've completely failed to stockpile or prepare for Brexit or to meet any of the 'six weeks stock' requirement.

It's not been a case of EU nations failing to ship or refusing to ship such drugs but a failure of government to plan and prepare.

On a personal note I hope things get sorted for you in time.
But yes, I agree, this balls up is the fault of our inept government failing to prepare, not directly a Brexit in itself situation.
Heck we haven't even left so there shouldn't be any Brexit inspired reason that stocks of meds are low.

hello bastion, the epp and mhra agreed terms prior to our converstion a couple of weeks ago. the issue manifesting is the wholesalers and the fact drugs have been in tight supply for a number of years.

rolling updates for the interested

We're approaching high noon
Various dates are being bandied around

Macron is playing harddball
Merkel and others keeping the pilot light on

Official EU statement before their official proposition (worth the read from link)



A Brexit delay beyond EU parliament elections scheduled on May 23-26 would force Britain to participate in the vote and elect representatives to the EU assembly - an option May wants to avoid but which could become inevitable if the British parliament fails to ratify a withdrawal deal in coming weeks.

British participation could change the political balance in the next European legislature, EU officials fear, as Britons are seen electing strongly Eurosceptic lawmakers, boosting already growing numbers of nationalists who seek to weaken the bloc.

Yet Britain’s Labour party, if it fields candidates, could boost the weight of the socialist grouping in the EU assembly, potentially allowing the centre-left to gain a majority.

Polls in the remaining 27 EU countries currently predict the centre-right will win most seats in the next EU parliament - so when Britain and its MEPs leave the EU, the majority in the European assembly could change.

That raises uncertainty over the next executive commission, which must be approved by European lawmakers. As a result, EU officials are considering extending the mandate of the existing executive led by Jean-Claude Juncker beyond its term which expires at end of October, the senior official said.

This extension, which would be limited to a few months, would avoid the risk that a changed power balance in the EU parliament after Brexit could raise doubt about the legitimacy of the new executive, the official said.


As i type : the consensus seems to be 31st of October



EU sources have confirmed that there will be an article 50 extension to October 31 with a review of British cooperation to determine whether there should be an earlier exit on June 30 - the date Theresa May originally asked for.

The June “break clause” has been put in to appease France, as President Emmanuel Macron wanted assurances that the UK would conduct European elections properly.

You call away pal.

Fact is nobody knows what going on by design.

You canny balls up something like Brexit to the extent that it has been without skills.

I make up my mind by what i read and witness.

Put it this way, if Brexit was Football, the whole shower of Westminster would be a fourth division team.

My guess is it's not gone down the way.

Nurses and other low-paid NHS staff, have been known and forced to use food banks to survive!

If that does not perfectly illustrate the state of our beloved national health service i really dont know what the hell does anymore.

I did read (and I wish I could remember where) that chronic pain medication, mental health medication and I think epilepsy meds ,in event of no deal will stop flowing until a deal is arramged, there's no "No Deal" deal for these meds while others are covered. It's alleged that it's already affecting supplies and doctors surgeries are being asked to keep schtum but one spoke out.

I have personal anecdotal evidence that backs this up as I know people who use all 3 of these (not all 3 at once, to my knowledge) and the 3 people closest to me are all having problems getting meds and are only getting a week supply at a time (no high risk people who only get a week supply to prevent overdose) and are getting dodgy excuses (we don't normally stock these, despite it not being a problem in the past) as well as one guy told he has to put up with chronic back pain because they can't get his meds.

This isn't project feat, this is happening...

“MHRA is aware that companies who market pharmaceuticals in the EU and UK will need to plan and make decisions
in advance of the UK’s departure from the EU in March 2019.

“We have reached agreement on the terms of an implementation period from March 30 2019 to December 31 2020.
During this time, the UK will no longer be a member state, but market access will continue on current terms.

restrictions on medications have been ongoing now for a few years or has nobody informed you. research it.

hansard house of lords will reveal the only two factors of concern are,

1. short-lived radioisotopes for u know what!

2. wholesalers stockpiling and rationing medicines intentionally. why? perhaps gouging and financial gain

are the flavour of the day.

you may just stumble on articles that will show restrictions of medications are euro-wide, or just ignore them ones

as they don't seem to fit the narrative.

It's project fear. The UK also exports pharmaceuticals to the EU which would be disrupted if the EU crash borders on day one, along with all those truckloads of Dutch tomatoes no doubt.

Perhaps the twittering classes are more concerned that their supply of Dutch skunk, or Spanish coke will be disrupted.

Don't believe what the MSM tells you, skunk is a catch-all term for stronger strains, skunk actually comes around very rarely.
