That this House welcomes the decision by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) to recommend the Duchenne muscular dystrophy treatment, Translarna, for funding by NHS England, as a result of a Managed Access Agreement; notes that Translarna is the first ever approved drug to treat an underlying genetic cause of Duchenne muscular dystrophy; recognises the tireless campaigning by patients and families throughout the NHS England and NICE processes calling for access to Translarna; acknowledges the vital role that Muscular Dystrophy UK and Action Duchenne have played as patient organisation stakeholders during the NICE assessment process; further recognises the role of other charities in pressing for access to Translarna; further notes with concern the announcement by the Scottish Medicines Consortium to recommend that Translarna not be approved for funding by NHS Scotland; and calls on NHS England to shorten implementation from three months so that the drug is available as quickly as possible.
