DMcG your evidence may be anecdotal but representative of a problem across the EU (as I pointed out many months ago when the issue was first raised here and blamed on Brexit)

Any internet search will establish medicine shortages are increasing throughout the EU, not just in the UK.

It has as much to do with a diminishing supply base and decreasing profitability as much as anything else.
