P.2018/91 - Requête - (Deputy Roffey and 6 other Members)
THESE PREMISES CONSIDERED, YOUR PETITIONERS humbly pray that the States may be pleased to resolve:
1. To direct the Committee for Health & Social Care and the Committee for Employment & Social Security that as a minimum outcome the current wide ranging review of the funding of treatments, services and other interventions should result in Guernsey patients who are referred to the UK for tertiary treatment having access to the same range of medicines and treatments as NHS funded patents being treated in the same hospitals or medical centres for the same conditions.
2. That such equality of access should also apply to those same Guernsey patients post-discharge or when they have returned to Guernsey after a tertiary treatment episode.
3. To direct the Committee for Health & Social Care and the Committee for Employment & Social Security to consider if there is any practical way to bring forward such a development ahead of the outcome of the general review.
4. That, in principle, in the medium term Guernsey should return to the policy of including all NICE approved drugs on the local white list.
