Thought this might interest other BLF members who don't have COPD. Front page news in my local paper says we have researched and found a new drug to help in a form of cystic fibrosis,a serious lung disease, however the cost of £182.000 per annum is prohibitive to the West Midlands Health Authority, who also will not accept an offer of free treatment from the manufacturers for the effected patients. What logic says we will research at a massive cost only to be told the drugs can't be prescribed, seems very depressing news for the patients but quite common news headlines in many cases these days. Would love to here the groups comments on this!!!!!!!!
