It must be true, I read it in the paper…

Posted on 23rd September 2016

Newspaper front pages are filled with the news that bisphosponates are being denied to breast cancer patients because of confusion over who will fund the treatment, but when i editor Oliver Duff chooses this is a subject of his editorial and amidst the general outcry from cancer charities and oncologists is there hope that NHS England may speed up their work on updated guidelines on use of the drug?

Patients frequently make contact with lawyers to ask whether they can question refusals to fund medications or particular treatments in the face of overstretched NHS budgets. Let us hope that this one is resolved before they start asking whether they can take legal action because their cancer has spread as a result of failure to use a simple and cheap remedy.
