A huge congratulations to the many campaigners who have been working tirelessly to ameliorate access to Cystic Fibrosis medicines. Today the Government agreed a deal to provide Orkambi and other lifesaving Cystic Fibrosis drugs on the NHS. This is such wonderful news! It will improve thousands of lives. Many thanks to my brave constituents who raised this important issue to me and urged me to speak of this in the Westminster Hall debate last year. I’m so pleased that all your hard work has paid off.
For those of you who aren’t aware of Orkambi. It is a precision medicine which tackles the root cause of Cystic Fibrosis, the most common inherited genetic disease in the UK.
