BOPA takes medicines shortages very seriously as shortages of vital cancer medicines have a big impact for patients and BOPA members who have to spend time and effort dealing with the supply problems. The European Association of Hospital Pharmacists (EAHP) has been addressing the issue of medicines shortages over the years, culminating in a 2014 survey on medicines shortages, that can be found on the EAHP website http://www.eahp.eu/practice-and-policy/medicines-shortages. They are undertaking a follow up survey and seeking UK pharmacists to contribute. Here is the link to the new survey. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/EAHPshortagesurvey2018 I would on behalf of BOPA committee encourage you to complete thes survey.
