Overpriced Medications

Overpriced Medications

Investigate why drug companies are charging so much for their products. They are making massive profits through such overpricing leading to certain patients not having drugs which could help them not being available to them. In some instances the NHS cannot afford to buy them. We have had the ridiculous situation where members of the family have had to use a fund raising campaign to fly a son or a daughter to Mexico or the US to get treatment which was not available here because of the price of certain drugs. This should not be in the 21st century.

Why is this important?

Treatment should be available to all especially if it means life or death.
