    Leeds North West MP Greg Mulholland has welcomed NHS England finally acting to publish new guidance for patients with rare diseases and in 'critical need'.

    When an NHS England policy allowing funding for medicines for critically ill patients expired in March 2014, rare disease patients were thrown into the nightmare situation of been denied access, without the right of appeal. For some adults and children, this meant facing the risk of catastrophic deterioration in their health that could prove fatal. More than a year on, NHS England has updated its policies to rectify the situation allowing patients at risk of serious harm or death to access medicine if their doctors can prove their need is urgent. The new procedures are expected to be published this week.
