Mr. Samuels told that generic manufacturers in the UK – those who produce drugs that are not protected by patents – and the government “take this business as seriously as possible and that is why we want to behave responsibly”.

He said: “It means working together to avoid shortages.

“However, responsibility also monitors where there is a risk of shortages, and tries to take steps to avoid them.

“The government has a team that, in collaboration with us, conducts its own analysis of where there is a risk of shortages, and equally we have inside information from our members, often confidential, about where there are risks in the supply chain. So we understand that there are risks, yes. “
