Permission Given for a Judicial Review into Sodium Oxybate Funding Refusal

20 November 2015

On Friday 13 November 2015, Narcolepsy UK was at the High Court to support an application for a judicial review of NHS England’s refusal to fund sodium oxybate (brand name Xyrem®) for a child with narcolepsy in England, where this medication was recommended by the treating Consultant.

With the benefit of legal aid, and an exceptionally dedicated legal team (Ian Wise QC, Monckton Chambers, Peter Todd and Freya Colvin, Hodge Jones & Allen Solicitors LLP) permission for a judicial review of NHS England’s refusal to fund sodium oxybate has been given.
