Delayed release

We were advised on 8 April 2022 that there were some delays in releasing quinapril with hydrochlorothiazide through Pfizer's quality and assurance system. This meant pharmacies were unable to procure the product.

We understand product is moving through the supply chain now. We appreciate the frustration these delays may have caused.
