Specialised Healthcare Alliance (SHCA) update

A number of members of the SHCA, including the Neurological Alliance, co-signed a letter to urge the three main political party leaders to reverse the recent NICE access to treatment reforms and guarantee that any future reforms will be considered by Parliament before being implemented. The letter was finally issued as an open letter to all the party leaders and published in The Telegraph.

Sarah Vibert, chief executive, Neurological Alliance, said: “Politicians from all sides should pledge to rethink these damaging proposals. It is completely unacceptable that patients with neurological conditions risk being denied access to treatment solely on the basis of cost.”
