UK Denying Patients Sativex Treatment

sativex

All over the UK, sufferers of multiple sclerosis are being denied a highly effective cannabis based medicine sativex that has taken eleven years to produce.

Here are some examples:

Oxfordshire

Wigan

The South

Yorkshire

What the hell is going on?

Medical marijuana isn’t even an option for these people.

They spend ELEVEN YEARS making a version of this medicine anyone can take then blatantly deny people access to it.

This is madness. Evil madness.

Even the Multiple Sclerosis Trust states:

“It is frustrating to learn that a number of PCTs are refusing to fund the medicine on the grounds that it is not cost-effective”.

Why are we causing people unnecessary suffering? I am disgusted. Again.

The MS Trust say they can help you appeal against a decision if you have been denied access.

And here’s a very well written article showing how this whole thing may not be quite what it seems.
