Medication Supply Issue

Posted by: ch - Posted on:

Supply of Dulaglutide/Trulicity, Liraglutide/Saxenda/Victoza and Semaglutide/Ozempic/Rybelsus

We have been informed that due to an increasing demand for the above medications to assist with weight loss (off-label use), there is going to issues obtaining supplies of these medications until at least the end of June 2024.

We will therefore be reviewing all patients on these medications and look to alternative options if needed. At present the supply issue is only affecting semagluitde/Ozempic/Rybelsus, but it is expected the other products will follow suit.

We will therefore be arranging for HbA1c blood tests for those that haven’t had a test within the last 3 months and based on the results, will then be calling or arranging face to face appointments to look at alternatives. We would then aim to recheck HbA1c after a 3-month period to assess effectiveness.

If you have any concerns or queries, please do not hesitate to contact the practice.
