NICE have not lived up to their name again having just cut the legs off the introduction of two Bowel Cancer drugs in England and Wales.

“Charities have criticised a proposal to block the routine NHS use of two drugs for advanced bowel cancer.

The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (Nice) said there was insufficient evidence to recommend Avastin and Erbitux”.

So now we know,patients in England are just going to DIE,thanks to bean counters.

Interestingly,according to the BBC,A similar decision has already been made in Scotland?.

This isn’t quite that black and white though,because,in England,those already on the drugs will have them stopped,and now only have digging their own grave to look forward too,BUT IN WALES,if you are on them NOW,you will continue to be covered.

Thanks to devolution,the Welsh have the good fortune of being able to decide for themselves many things,UNLIKE ENGLAND,who has no choice,however,they don’t enjoy anything like the autonomy that the Raj gave their own Country of Scotland.

An example of which is that,prior to the UK Government controlled NICE pulling the carpet from under the NHS in Wales,the Welsh had already given the two drugs the GREEN LIGHT,which you can read HERE

But the Scottish Raj slapped them down and said “NO”,which can be read HERE so it’s six of one and half a dozen of the other,patients in England will just DIE,patients in Wales at least have a lifeline,current patients will live,new ones will,like England,just fill up cemetery’s,some choice,as for those in Scotland,my bet is they will get England to pay for it for them via taxes!.
