Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)

I know that concerns about the supply of medications can be very distressing, so I would like to reassure you that my colleagues in the Department of Health and Social Care are aware of supply issues with some treatments, and they are working closely with suppliers to address the problem.

I note that the Department of Health and Social Care urge patients who used HRT products to discuss alternatives with their doctor. I welcome the announcement of a £33.9 billion increase to the NHS budget by 2023/24, as well as £1.8 billion to improve hospital and health facilities.

I will continue to closely monitor any issues with medication supplies.
