Just read this on-line on Daily Mail site. Has anyone else seen this article. I sent it to my lung specialist nurse who doesn't know anything about it. This was going to be my next line of treatment.
Hundreds of cancer patients in England and Wales to be denied life-prolonging drug - but patients in SCOTLAND will still get it.
Lung cancer patients will be denied Tarceva because The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence has changed its guidance on the drug
It's currently an option for 1,000 people a year after chemo has failed
Experts say Nice's decision will send cancer care 'backwards'.
The decision was made because the drug is more expensive than an alternative that has just come off-patent.
How more life prolonging drugs are they going to stop us from having although you'll live longer if you live in Scotland. Why????
