Anticipatory / End of Life Medicines

Please continue to access anticipatory medicines in the usual way. Community pharmacies generally hold small stocks of these drugs and can order from wholesalers for daily delivery. A number of pharmacies in Leeds are commissioned by NHS England to hold larger stocks which are available for more urgent need. At the time of writing, it is not legal for care homes to maintain stocks of these medicines. Please read the briefing below which includes links to further clinical guidance.
