2013 Medicines Shortage Survey

EAHP's 2013 survey of the medicines shortage problem

A previous survey of EAHP's membership on the shortages topic received over 300 responses from 27 countries. Headline results included:

  • 99% of hospital pharmacists in Europe have experienced shortage problems in the last year
  • 63% of hospital pharmacists report medicines shortages to be a weekly, sometimes daily, occurrence
  • 77% consider the problem has become worse over the past year.

A booklet (June 2013), setting out the results in more detail, is available here.
