The Department of Health said they expect the NHS to provide approved drugs to those who need them after a report by health experts claimed that one third of patients with kidney cancer have been denied life-treating medicine.
Patients have a right to drugs and treatments that have been approved by Nice and we expect the NHS to provide them if they are needed.
That is why the chief executive of the NHS has written to the local NHS requiring them to publish which NHS organisations are funding and using drugs and treatments approved by Nice, and which are not.
