Another cancer drug we can’t have

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

It’s looking increasingly likely that the lung cancer drug Tarceva will not be made available in England.

The drug is widely available in North Britain but NICE considers the drugs not to be an effective use of taxpayers money.  Money isn’t such an issue for our neighbours north of the border as it is the multi-billion pound subsidy paid by English taxpayers that means they can afford expensive medical treatments.

    Like it!
