People with ultra rare genetic diseases have protested at Westminster in their continuing campaign to try and persuade the health service to keep funding a drug which could change their lives.
They include six-year-old Sam Brown, from Otley, who has Morquio Syndrome.
It is a rare condition that means his skeleton does not grow properly, but his internal organs do.
Sam has been receiving a drug called Vimizin that helps him live a normal life.
It is expensive but it had been provided free by the drug company which produces it.
However, that deal is coming to an end.
Jon Hill reports:
Leeds MP Greg Mulholland will lead campaigners later today in a protest outside Parliament to step up the pressure on NHS England to fund much-needed drugs for people with ultra-rare diseases.
He has taken up the case of six-year-old Sam Brown from Otley who suffers from the rare genetic disease Morquio Syndrome, but has been told his drug, previously provided for free by the drug company, will not be supplied beyond May 12.
"These families and charities have had enough of being let down and fobbed off over the failure to approve funding for the life changing drugs these children need.
"They are we are consistently getting no real responses from NHS England or from Ministers, all of whom are hiding behind the ongoing consultation for a new system and even then, it is not clear when funding could be approved for the three drugs these children need and how long this will take.
“It was NHS England’s who had to scrap their process in December due to it being flawed and discriminatory, so the moral as well as legal responsibility is on them and the Department for Health to put in place interim funding now to pay for these until a they can establish a new, fit for purpose system for approving drugs longer term, that should have been there in the first place.
"So the Prime Minister must now personally intervene and with less than three weeks before Parliament dissolves, we need a decision on interim funding before then.
"People including children will soon lose access to the drugs they need and their conditions will deteriorate irreversibly as result and for that to happen due to a lack of leadership and accountability is appalling so we need an announcement on interim funding for these drugs now".
