    The health service has been unable to stockpile certain drugs in case of a no-deal Brexit, potentially putting patients at risk, documents show.
    Confidential NHS England files - seen by BBC Newsnight - suggest supply chain issues mean some drugs used to treat conditions like epilepsy and bipolar disorder "cannot be stockpiled".
    Potential shortages would have "a significant impact", documents say.
    The Department of Health said supplies "should be uninterrupted".

"These issues are unrelated to out exit from the EU", so why does the title start with "Brexit::". In any case, if these drugs are important why isn't their alternative sources to mitigate other availability risks. "For some drugs on the list there are stockpiles of alternative formulations and for many conditions switching between them does not cause any harm" - clear as mud then.

Sodium Valproate for Epillilepsy about 4 quid in any pharmacy in SE Asia. No restrictions, no problems, you dont even need a prescription so what is the UK's issue? Oh yeah I remember now they call it the "gravy train". big business in bed with big government.

These Project Fear ideas always amuse me as everyone looks at the issue from the WRONG perspective. IF being in the EU has hollowed out the UKs Pharmaceutical Industry to the point where we can only IMPORT certain drugs, for which we are in turn dependent on Europe for, and they have no shelf life...what good has it done our country to be in the EU the last few decades? Surely this is good enough reason on its own to LEAVE. So we can sort out the mess our pharmaceutical industry is clearly in as a result of being in the EU.

Without NDA’s the government would be unable to function. Hiding failures and incompetence is stock in trade for politicians and senior civil servants. Some measures for the greater “good” would impossible to implement without NDA’s. True facts would only upset the electorate who would in all likelihood pains and worsen the situation. All in all it is surprising what knowledge is available to those who look look for it.

I am told medicines and non perrishable foods are already stockpiled. The few medicines that have short use by dates can be flown in! Sorry folks...looks like we all voted for the totally monster raving loony MP's. Most hate May's deal yet although most confirm they will work to leave and honour the will of the referendum, they appear to reject the very action that would solve the situation...that of leave with no deal. The MP's cannot see through May's attempts to quosh the will of the people. Just look at the definitions of leave and exit. Neither include staying in with the controlling conditions of May's insane deal. This country is governed by idiots who have already paid billions to the EU since we voted in 2016 and if May's deal goes ahead, we will continue to pay billions until the EU decide we can leave! Those billions could have cancelled austerity and give us a better NHS, more police, more teachers, better schools and public services, increased pensions etc etc etc! If we had left on day one, the UK would be in superb shape. Time to lock all the MP's in the House of Commons with one days supply of bread and water, a chemical toilet and one toilet roll until they finally do as instructed. LEAVE WITH NO DEAL!

More money for NHS ,schools ,police ?. There will be no money i do think because UK will have to cover the big holl because of tarifs. Never belive the politicians. I cant belive the people have belived that those 350 mil will go strait away to NHS. Hey.....Paradise is comming !!There is no doubt that you want to be out of EU. That is your decission and EU will respect those wills but you have to be aware that chain reaction will come. Your goverment maybe is bad but they do know more and better about situacion after No Deal. I can belive you are so naive . Why you didnt react 10 years ago about immigration for example. Spanish did not say anything about British people who are living there or others nations. Did they decide to go out because of immigracion ? No. I do think that England doesnt have Balls to say No and stop in these same time be in EU.What are you affraid ?

Brexit is quite plainly not a desirable option in any format. There is no majority for any of it. Revoke Article 50. We don't want to be hearing daily brexit for years to come. Exit Brexit.

Everything you buy has to get shipped in on trucks, ships and air freight. With a hard brexit those will get halted and delayed at the border... You can't just 'buy it elsewhere' There's nobody to buy it from as the drugs aren't in your vicinity.

Project fear rides again. The pharmacist said this has been going on for years and nothing to do with Brexit. I think there are multiple reasons why some people have problems with their drugs. When a drug comes off patent or licence it means others can make it and there is a percent up or down allowed of the active ingredient. I have had this problem, the surgery prescribes what is supposed to be the same drug but because it has come off licence they choose a cheaper version to save money telling you it’s the same. I believe even small variations in the manufacturing of the drug can cause it not to work as previously.

@AThomas Mathew if we leave without a deal we cannot do that. It's about the regulations of importing medicine. We will not have those in place. The UK as a whole is not prepared well enough for no deal. The close vote last night that's hopefully going to be made law effectively prevents an accidental no deal.

Pharmacist here:this isn't new, this has been going on since I finished my training 6 years ago. There have been "manufacturing issues" (the reason we are always given) on so many different medications across the years. Notable mentions: diltiazem, isosorbide monohydrate, epilim, epipens, carbimazole. It's been happening for YEARS, since before Brexit was ever mentioned, and now it's the fault of Brexit? I'm sorry but that's just straight disingenuous. At the end of the video they even say as much. I don't doubt Brexit will make it worse but the issues would still exist regardless.

@maisey1852 thank you for your comment - it's the young without these drugs I feel sorry for. I stayed up all night due to other illnesses so I could ring the docs. They weren't going to give me an appointment for 2 weeks, so I had to tell them why I had to speak to the doctor urgently as my supply will have run out by then. I told them that I won't be asking for a prescription for these drugs as it wouldn't be fair to others who aren't yet aware, I just want to know any alternatives, or what could be subscribed to lessen the shock to the body. I have 3 friends on these drugs so I feel for them. In this case, it isn't propaganda as people have been accusing, but that all depends on who gets the blame, likely the general public because of whatever vote you did or didn't make! It may have been covered up for some good reasons and bad ones however, which I wont go into here. It may have been for the best in the long run.

@zedeighty among pharmacists? Not really, we are only told the the "manufacturer cant supply" them, although I'm sure cost has a factor; if other countries are willing to pay more then the companies will supply them instead. I imagine that was the case with epipens at least, the price in the US rocketed to $500 and that will have had a knock on effect to other countries (they went out of stock for a long time here). Believe me, as pharmacists we want to know more about why as well, explaining to people that need life saving medication that we just can't get it and we don't know why doesn't satisfy anyone.

@Maduran Sundaresan All talk and no substance, Britain will be fine, this is not how economics works. We will not run out of food and medicine. For a start, the UK produces 60-80% of its domestic food consumption (including waste). Secondly, we are able to trade with the entire world on WTO terms, so if vital resources such as food and medicine were needed at short notice, we would simply buy them from the world market (at WTO tariffs of approximately 3.5% more than present deals with EU-based producers.) Given time for reciprocal trade agreements, this will actually be significantly cheaper than the present case, where EU-produced foodstuffs are subject to protectionism in favour of domestic agriculture. Goods can be expected to be marginally more expensive in the short term following Brexit, but in that scenario we will just start developing more stuff ourselves to compensate that. But to suggest that it is impossible to obtain these without the EU? Unless Guy Verhofstad is sending U-Boats to blockade our trade routes, we should be fine, thanks.

And therefore the stores may end selling them. Not a horrible thing though. And there is some French marmalade also like. As long as there is water that doesn’t taste sh*t, toilet paper, and clean underwear, I’ll survive.
