In October, the Department invited wholesalers and pre-wholesalers of pharmaceutical warehouse space to bid for Government funding to secure the additional capacity needed for stockpiled medicines covering ambient, cold chain and controlled drug storage. We had a good response to that invitation and funding for selected organisations has now been agreed. Contracts will be signed shortly.
