Isle of Man increases medicine stocks ahead of Brexit

DHSC ups store level from four weeks to six weeks

The amount of medicine being stored on the Isle of Man has been increased ahead of Brexit.

Chief Minister Howard Quayle revealed the Department of Health and Social Care is now keeping six weeks worth of drugs instead of four, in line with UK advice ahead of Britain's exit from the European Union.

Mr Quayle is due to meet with the UK Government's Brexit team in Westminster over the next week to learn more about how the Island could be impacted.

Speaking on Manx Radio's Sunday Opinion programme, Mr Quayle insisted the supply of medications won't be an issue.
