    Excellent service from GP’s issuing prescriptions, but there seems to be a problem with pharmacies accessing drugs. Is there a genuine shortage of some drugs or is it a more specific supply problem ? The NuMark distribution centre on Dolydd Road is also closing shortly and work transferred to Runcorn. This was the main depot for Wrexham and located very close to the hospital. It will be interesting to see if we are going to be better served as a city or will the service be subject to further decline.

    Thanks for that a very interesting read.

    “There should be centralisation of medicines stock, similar to the system in Wales, to help manage demand and forecasting, particularly for critical medicines that could be stockpiled by the government;”

    This paragraph was interesting, what is the centralised system in Wales? Where is it based? How does it work especially as we are going to be served from Runcorn in England?
