No insulin is made in the UK. It can't be by March. No deal Brexit threatens supply according to Medicines Regulator Sir Michael Rawlings. What are the government going to do to prevent type-1 diabetics dying ?

Interesting question for the government and the Pharma companies but how could any govt contemplate a policy that threatens the life supporting Medicine to keep all Type 1 and many Type 2 diabetics alive ? Even if sorted in the end the insecurity for diabetics is inexcusable

I’m quoting the man who regulates the supply of life saving Medicines.

That’s not my job. As a journalist it’s to report the words of the man who regulates the supply of life saving drugs

According to the regulator of medicines we can’t do this by Brexit date

I’m reporting the words of the regulator of the supply of life saving medicines. And as a Diabetic myself I will politely demand to know if that medicine will continue after March given those anxious comments from the one man man in the U.K. charged with overseeing it

I too think this will be sorted not because May is a Diabetic but because saving hundreds of thousands of lives will become a government priority. Tonight I tweeted the concerns of the man who regulates the supply of life saving medicine because politics has brought us here.

Suggestion: Ask your MP to demand a relaxation in the rules so that Diabetic supporting families can get enough insulin supplies to get them over what would probably be a temporary blip in supply.

Nicky - your campaigning has been an inspiration to many. Contrary to what Brexiteers are saying tonight - I’m not scaremongering- I’m asking questions -the words of the medicines regulator can prompt action if anyone is still listening in this partisan blizzard

Local health authorities will allow only 4-6 week supply- which is why any chaos at the ports is a real concern and why the medicines regulator says continuity of supply isn’t yet sorted but urgently needs to be

Did Sir Michael give even a vague reason why we would not be able to buy it from our normal suppliers ?

Read the Pharmaceutical Journal interview that I tweeted earlier . He’s worried about a sudden interruption to the supply chain not a permanent break. But Any interruption is a catastrophic problem for me and other insulin dependent diabetics-it hasn’t yet but can be sorted

Are you sure no insulin is made in the UK? Wockhardt (Wrexham) and Eli Lilly (Basingstoke) appear to do so.

I’m quoting Sir Mike Rawlins in the Pharmaceutical Journal who said “not a drop” made here. As a type 1 diabetic really surprised me too.

Last week Sir Michael Rawlins, the head of the Medicines and Healthcare Regulatory Agency, told the Pharmaceutical Journal that officials urgently needed to sort the insulin supply lines out in case of a no-deal Brexit because 'we import every drop of it'. 1/5
