PAGB response to reports that stocks of paracetamol are low

Published on: 23 March 2020


Responding to reports that stocks of paracetamol are low, PAGB Chief Executive, John Smith, said:

“In recent weeks there has been an unprecedented increase in demand for paracetamol. PAGB member companies are working incredibly hard to increase supplies and will do all they can to ensure paracetamol products are available in pharmacies and supermarkets across the UK.

“We understand that some stores are limiting sales and we welcome the measures that retailers are putting in place to manage demand. We urge people to only buy what they currently need.”
