Scotland doubles cash for new medicines fund


Date: 20/05/2015

The Scottish Government has again promised to double the amount of money to fund treatments for rare or end-of-life conditions, increasing that available through its New Medicines Fund from £40 million to £80 million in 2015/16.

The Fund was initially set up with a £20 million cash pot for 2013/14 to replace Rare Conditions Medicines Fund and better support health boards in funding the cost of orphan, ultra-orphan and end-of-life drugs for patients.
