It is my wont to watch Question Time in an attempt to keep up to speed with popular opinion on current affairs. This week, as usual, Brexit was being debated. Professor Robert Winston was voicing his opinion from a medical point of view. A cold shudder went down my spine when he averred that specialist cancer drugs would no longer be available to the NHS given a Brexit unless this was negotiated. Some of our drugs come from Europe, some from America, manufactured under license in China in the case of Ibrutinib. Some of us are are recieving treatment via the NHS, others via trials.
I am wondering, given the above, and Winston is not noted for scare tactics, what we should be doing to ensure our continued supply of drugs that are keeping us alive, bearing in mind that some may not have the money to pay if available and health insurers would not cover a known issue.
