People being ‘denied access’ to medicinal cannabis three years after law change - Times & Star

Health Secretary Sajid Javid is being urged to “deliver on his commitment” to ensure that children with severe epilepsy can access medical cannabis.

Campaign group End Our Pain said families were being left thousands of pounds out of pocket after paying for private prescriptions – despite a change in the law three years ago allowing certain patients to access treatment through the NHS.

The law change was made possible after several high-profile cases, including those of young epilepsy sufferers Alfie Dingley and Billy Caldwell, whose conditions appeared to be helped by cannabis oil.
