One of our staff members was off ill last week (she’s much better now by the way) and brought the programme below to our attention.
It’s an episode of Fake Britain all about fake medicines and how harmful these can be to people that take them!
Quite worryingly it also appears that there’s been quite a few instances of fake medicines getting into the NHS supply chain as well!
We would recommend that everyone watches this and then you’ll never have any desire to purchase medicines online.
What we also found quite disturbing is that there’s actually no legal requirement in this country for MHRA wholesalers to record batch numbers of medicines they are storing (however it is a requirement for veterinary drugs). Here at Hercules we always record batch numbers of any products we store and distribute, as well as recording the batch number of any product samples we’ve sent out and who we’ve sent them to.
