Dutch health officials are rushing to ensure “critical” drugs supplied by Britain are still available if the UK crashes out of the European Union without a deal next month.

The Netherlands’ health minister Bruno Bruins said that 50 drugs had been shortlisted from 2,700 UK-related medications because there are “no or no adequate alternatives on the Dutch market”.

However, he declined to release the names of the medications over fears that other EU states could hoard the drugs or drive up prices.
