No shortage of medication despite cancelled sailings

Fri, 09 Dec 2011

The Department of Health says there's no need to stockpile medicine.

Health officials say supplies of prescription drugs on the Island haven't been too badly affected by recent cancellations to sailings.

Some pharmacies have been running low on some medicines, but stocks have been shared, and the Department says it isn't aware of anyone being unable to obtain urgent medicines.

It's also been revealed that the Department has contingency plans in place to fly drugs in should supplies run low.

However, a large shipment of medications was received yesterday.

Anyone with concerns is advised to speak with their pharmacist
