Breakthrough Breast Cancer Campaign And Access To Life-Extending Drugs

EDM number 598 in 2014-15, proposed by Alan Meale on 03/12/2014.
Categorised under the topics of Diseases, Health services and Patient rights and complaints.

That this House is aware of the organisation Breakthrough Breast Cancer's demand for a fair price campaign which calls for fairer access for sufferers of cancer to life-extending drugs; notes that although many of the treatments are very expensive and consequently have been rejected for routine use by the NHS, in England many are available via the Cancer Drugs Fund, a body whose tenure is due to expire in 2016; acknowledges that the Government controls the nation's drugs budget and negotiates with the pharmaceutical industry on pricing across Britain; and calls on the Government to work with the NHS, industry and charitable organisations to find a long-term solution to ensure that a person’s life cannot simply be priced away on any simple cost analysis.

This motion has been signed by a total of 34 MPs.
