Previous Action

Contacted Scottish Ministry of Health- I sent an email to the Scottish Ministry of Health on the 26th May 2011 asking why a Scottish Cancer Drugs Fund was not set up in Scotland and giving reason why I think it would be a good service to implement. I was sent a reply on behalf of the Minister for Health which gave me ,in detail, the Scottish Governments plans on drug availability. For example the fact that the Scottish Government has published guidance for NHS boards to make decisions in relation to newly licensed medication.  

The reply mainly focussed on the Scottish Governments plans on cancer drugs and what they intend to do without the implementation of a cancer drugs fund.

Contacted MSP Iain Gray to take issue up on my behalf. I emailed my MSP asking whether he would support and raise this issue on my behalf. However due to party policy he could not and he emailed me back with a reply. I emailed back conveying my disappointment at this and about his response in generally.
