Drug Availabity

Asked what the Prime Minister thought of patients in Scotland having access to medicine that was not available in England and Wales, the PMS replied that there were separate arrangements in Scotland on health matters. Asked for a Prime Ministerial view on the subject, the PMS said that we had put record investment into the NHS and ensuring we provided the best service available to the British public was his priority.

Put that NICE had said that certain drugs were too expensive, the PMS said that individual trusts needed to make their decisions based on their own priorities, but providing the best possible care for the British public was of great importance.
