I understand the review is happening and that recommendations will be made to the Department of Health very soon. I hope people will be able to gain access to the drug. Some people with neurological conditions have to go to the black market, some have to go abroad, and, worse still, some have to go without. It is not acceptable that people are denied a drug with medical benefits. They should not have to go to the black market for it. I hope that, after the review, people will be able to gain access to it legally rather than illegally.
