Medicines accessibility and use during COVID-19 in the United Kingdom: is current pandemic legislation and guidance fit for purpose?

   School of Medicine

   Applications accepted all year round  Self-Funded PhD Students Only

About the Project

The COVID-19 pandemic was unprecedented, as was the response required of the UK National Health Service. At the start of the pandemic in March 2020, community pharmacy teams saw a 25% increase in prescription volume compared with the previous month, which is in part thought due to changes in patient and prescriber behaviour. As well as increased work pressures, these changes were also associated with temporary medicines shortages at various stages of the pandemic.

Pending literature review, the research programme will explore the suitability of UK legislation and guidelines specific to medicines accessibility and use during a pandemic. Specific outputs may include suggestions for changes to medicines legislation and guidelines, including potential impacts on care delivery.
