Cancer Patients In Ireland Can't Access Same Medicines As Other EU Countries

: 08/09/2018 - 10:52

Cancer patients in Ireland are not getting the same access to new medicines as patients in 12 other EU countries.

New data from the Irish Pharmaceutical Healthcare Association shows that four of these news treatments are for lung cancer which is among the most commonly diagnosed cancers in the country.

The IPHA, which represents research-based pharmaceutical companies, says delays in approving new medicines is 'frustratingly slow'

Director of Communications, Bernard Mallee, believes lessons need to be learned from our European neighbours.
