BBC Scotland programme "Life, Death and Enormous Amounts of Money"

16 Jan 2013

Cancer52 supported the CML Support Group's call for an apology from BBC Scotland for footage within its programme "Life, Death and Enormous Amounts of Money"  broadcast Wednesday 16th January 2013. The programme attached 'price tags' to the lives of individual patients with rare cancers.

 

Chair of Cancer52 Simon Davies said, "If the government and general public really wanted to save on the drugs bill they should be reviewing the money spent on unnecessary drugs and treatments for common diseases that are paid for without question and achieve very little."
