Artificial medicine shortages in the UK
It is alleged that patients are being put at risk because medicines intended for UK patients are being diverted for export. The BBC report covers UK as a whole, but there is anecdotal evidence that users of Welsh pharmacies have experienced shortages.
Incidentally, the Welsh authorities appear to be more at fault in a related issue. A report states that delays in receiving treatment are aggravating the state of substance abusers in Wales.
