Prescription drugs shortage in North Yorkshire

Prescription drugs shortage in North Yorkshire

There's a shortage of drugs in the UK, because wholesalers are selling them abroad to make a profit.

As a result of the Euro being so strong against the Pound, drugs are being shipped overseas at a bumper price.

It means epilepsy and cancer patients here are suffering.

Annie Thompson got in touch with Minster fm as she is not happy. She represents a local partnership network in York that's working to prevent drugs being sent abroad for profit.
