People in Wales have been campaigning for years for fair access to new cancer drugs. You might find it difficult to comprehend but these drugs have only been available to a minority of patients for years via a cruel postcode lottery. Patients in Wales are more than 7 times less likely to receive drugs than patients in England. The Government insist there is research to prove a Drugs Fund is unethical and medically divisive and that a Cancer Drugs Fund is unpopular with patients.
I thought some of you who have benefitted from drugs in England and Scotland might have a view on this. Today Sky News is following the story in Wales. A petition, signed by 100,000 people, for fair access to drugs in Wales will be handed over to the Welsh Assembly at 1 p.m. this afternoon by a delegation of desperate people.
