    For the last nine months or so, I have been leading the national #FundourDrugsNOW campaign for funding - and a proper decision making process - for drugs for ultra orphan rare diseases. I have been working with patients, families, charities, clinicians and drugs companies and some months ago we had all been told NHS England would make an interim funding decision on 25th June. Then at my Westminster Hall debate on 16th June, we were told this was then delayed to 30th June. I tabled a parliamentary question questioning the reason for the delay. The decision then got delayed to 1st July. We were then told stakeholders would be told by 11am on 2nd July and that a press release would go out at 3pm - neither happened. A press notice then went up on NHS England's website at nearly 5pm and its news? That after all that, NHS England would not be making a decision at all leaving distressed patients and families in limbo. Talk about a let-down.
