Drug shortage website – 7 April 2020

MIMS provide a live drug shortage tracker that practice staff can now access. You will need to register for this service with GP Online, the provider of MIMS.  The tracker is based on national stock shortages and may not necessarily reflect local stock levels – please confirm with the patient’s community pharmacy if there is a local shortage before switching a patient’s medicines to an alternative based on the data from MIMS.
