Shortage of drugs led pharmacists to warn "the consequences could be further hospital admissions or even fatalities"         "They will not explain their imposed quota system and they will not discuss the issue directly." Shortages were "out of hand and nearing catastrophe" - Andrew McCoig, the chief executive of the NHS pharmaceutical committee for Merton, Sutton         "Before the introduction of manufacturers' quotas, the market for medicines worked effectively.
