DAY OF ACTION FOR CYSTIC FIBROSIS DRUGS

27th August 2019

For the people with Cystic Fibrosis who could benefit from life-changing drugs – Orkambi and Symkevi – Vertex must revise their offer to the Scottish Medical Consortium.

Cystic Fibrosis knows no borders, but there is a real opportunity for progress on treatment in Scotland. Vertex must make a more reasonable offer so that it can be accepted by the SMC.

I want to provide my support to those rallying outside Vertex’s HQ in London. The individuals and families affected have been fantastic advocates for the campaign and demonstrating just how much access would mean to them.

We are so close to a deal and I am hopeful that one is finally agreed.
