That should stop when we leave, and there is no reason why medicine imports should be a problem post Brexit. By the way the UK is a net exporter of medicines. we sell more to Europe than they do to us
    The UK is a net exporter of medicines, in a general sense. But, specific medicines are produced elsewhere. It isn't scaremongering at all, and that is borne with the fact the the Government have just spent around £90m on using ferries to transport medicines around for 6 months. But, yes, we have to leave because of, well, only one reason now... 3 years ago 17.4 million people voted to leave on the basis of a shit campaign that was bare on facts, and what facts there were were called fear mongering. Like you just did.

    I don't think the government has spent £90 m for ferries to transport medicines around, where did you get that from? It makes sense for it to plan for some disruption and it has provision for ferries but not specifically for medicines, which by their nature are small volume and for specialist medicines also high value. The medicine supply chain is complex but pretty robust and whilst there may be a few blips along the way there is no reason why we won't get medicines from the EU nor they from us.

    I think Sky is doing the scaremongering now. It says 3000 HGV s a week, will be able to board these ferries, but be assured that is not solely for medicines, so its headline is a bit suspect in my opinion.

    The Pharmaceutical industry has taken and will take steps to ensure continuation of medicine supply be it via ferry or air and I know that they have robust plans in place to counter any blips in the early days.

    Fine, call it scaremongering, but offer something factual to dismiss it.

    How many of the 3000 HGVs will be used for medicine supplies? (The sheer fact that the 5th largest economy in the world is having to secure medicine supplies whilst not at war is madness, no matter how you dress it up).

    What are these robust plans you speak of?

    I worked for many years in the pharmaceutical industry and medicine supply chain was part of my responsibility so I feel I have a good understanding of the issues that may occur if we leave the EU without some sort of deal, and Ive tried to keep things in perspective in my replies to you using my knowledge and experience..

    For information on robust plans please have a look at the ABPI website ( Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry)

    Thanks, I will read the ABPI website and gauge an opinion.

    I was thinking more about the report produced by Boris Johnson's government. Is he Project Fear or the man to deliver Brexit? He can't be both.

    Come on England. What a superb qualifying record. I never knew it was that good.

    Quote from the ABPI website:

    'However, despite all of the preparations that have been made by pharmaceutical companies, there a range of things outside of our control. This means that we remain concerned that should the UK leave the EU without a deal, there could be some disruption to the supply of some medicines. It is therefore crucial that a 'no deal' Brexit is avoided.'

    Doesn't sound great, to be honest.
