EU exit

After 31 January 2020 there will be a transition period until the end of 2020, while the UK and EU negotiate additional arrangements.

You don’t need to take any special action to keep getting your medicines and medical products after Brexit. 

Your medicines and prescriptions

If you or someone you care for regularly take medication you should keep ordering your prescriptions in the usual way and take your medicines as normal.

If you are concerned about treatment, please speak to your pharmacist, GP or specialist.

There is information for patients on NHS.uk/brexit-medicine
