Medicines Supply Tool

Source: DHSC and NHSE/I Nov 2021

DHSC and NHSE/I in conjunction with the NHS Specialist Pharmacy Service have launched an online Medicines Supply Tool, which provides up to date information about medicine supply issues.

The Tool has been developed to support healthcare professionals and organisations providing healthcare services to better support their patients when managing and mitigating the impact of a supply or shortage issue.

To access the Tool you will be required to register with the SPS website. Registration for access to the website is available to UK healthcare professionals and organisations providing NHS healthcare.

You can use the Tool to search for information on medicine supply issues by drug class, severity of issue, and by new, ongoing, or resolved issues. You will also be able to check when a medicine is expected to be back in stock.

Prescribers, pharmacy professionals, and pharmacy procurement leads are encouraged to register.
