A message from the Chief Pharmaceutical Officer Cathy Harrison:

“Covid-19 is presenting increasing challenges for the dedicated staff working in our community pharmacies.

“The Department is working to ensure that everyone continues to have access to their local community pharmacy. It is vital at this busy time that we are mindful of the pressure that community pharmacy staff are under.

“There is no need for you to do anything new or different when ordering or taking your medicines.

“People should order prescriptions and take their medicines as normal.

“Extra supplies should not be ordered from your doctor.

“Stockpiling or purchasing medication that you do not need is completely unnecessary and could disadvantage other patients.

“There are no prescription medicine shortages as a result of Covid-19.
