The Department has no plans to build pharmaceutical cold storage facilities in the event that the United Kingdom leaves the European Union without a deal.

On 23 October 2018, the Department launched an invitation to tender inviting providers of warehouse space to bid for Government funding to cover the costs they would incur by providing additional storage space for stockpiled medicines to support our no-deal Exit contingency planning.
