What length of delays can pharmacists realistically expect during the Olympics?
With over 1,500 pharmacies, hospitals and dispensing doctors near Olympic venues around the UK, BAPW and our members have contacted each of them to discuss delivery arrangements during the Olympic Games.
Unfortunately, due to the road restrictions put in place during the Games, there are over 40 pharmacies which will have to receive their deliveries in the middle of the night (between midnight and 6AM) instead of during the working day as usual.
There are also around 600 pharmacies which will only be able to receive a delivery once a day, instead of twice a day. We are confident that because of these special arrangements any disruption to the supply of medicines will be minimised.
