Hi all,

There have been reports in the press recently about NHS approved drugs including Riluzole, used to treat MND.

Alan has asked me to post the links here:

http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/health-and-families/health-news/report-claims-thousands-of-seriously-ill-nhs-patients-are-being-denied-drugs-9075875.html

If you are unaware of Riluzole or would like some more information, there is a feature in the 'what's new' section of our website: www.mndassociation.org/riluzoleandmnd as well as an Information Sheet (9), which can be found here: http://www.mndassociation.org/Resources/MNDA/Life%20with%20MND/Information%20Sheet%2009%20-%20Riluzole.pdf

Best wishes,

Andrew
