Hospitals ‘run out of drugs as stocks are sold abroad’ by at least 19 trusts | Mail Online

Misleading Headline Of The Week.

My reaction (stupidly, this is the Daily Mail after all) was “how on earth can NHS Trusts be allowed to sell their drugs overseas when they need them for their own patients??!!”

You have to read a few paragraphs into this tabloid tat before you learn that the people selling the drugs are the wholesalers and pharmacists, not the trusts. And they’re presumably entitled to sell wherever they can find a market.

Nothing to see here. Move along…
