Brexit has made UK medicine shortages worse, research suggests

  • Patients in the U.K. And EU are experiencing shortages of crucial medicines like antibiotics and epilepsy drugs, a report by Britain's Nuffield Trust revealed. The situation in the U.K. Is worsening and affecting EU nations as well.
  • Brexit did not directly cause the U.K.'s medicine supply issues but worsened them, as noted by Mark Dayan from the Nuffield Trust. Medicine shortages doubled between 2020 and 2023, with drug companies issuing over 1,600 shortage warnings in 2023.
  • Shortages forced pharmacies to pay above-normal costs for medicines, leading to taxpayer reimbursement challenges, according to the Nuffield Trust's research.
