Politicians from the UK’s three largest political parties have urged NHS England to make PrEP widely available to those most at risk of HIV transmission.
“Why they cannot see the sense in doing this baffles me,” says Labour’s Lord Cashman. “I was staggered…that they weren’t going ahead with PrEP. It will have to be introduced sooner rather than later. If it’s introduced sooner this shows leadership, it shows direction and it shows the approach to equality of access and equality of treatment which should be the bedrock of the NHS.”
