Julia, the people at PCUK are on the case with this one. There is a workshop on 16th September where they will make initial representation to NICE for the NHS to adopt use of this drug. I have been invited to contribute as a patient which should be interesting. I gather the workshop is the first step in a long process and I assume the wheels will turn relatively slowly, but thanks to PCUK something is happening on this front.

Hope you had a good weekend.

Take care

Steve

FDA usually do approve ahead of the UK - frustrating.
