5 April 2022
The Department is aware of supply issues affecting a very limited number of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) products. However, most remain available, including alternatives to those experiencing supply issues. We continue to work with all suppliers of HRT medicines to resolve these issues and maintain overall supply to patients in the United Kingdom. We also share regular updates on supply issues and management advice with the National Health Service and the Royal College of Obstetrics and Gynaecologists.
