S5W-21612: Jackie Baillie (Dumbarton)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 12 February 2019

To ask the Scottish Government how many patients have received the drug, Orkambi, through the Peer Approved Clinical System (PACS) since the announcement in December 2018 that the drug would be appraised by the Scottish Medicines Consortium.

Answered by: Jeane Freeman 11 March 2019

NHS Scotland Boards provide the Scottish Government with PACS Tier Two data on a quarterly basis. Next month we expect to receive the requested Orkambi figures, covering January-March 2019. My officials will provide the member with those details as soon as they become available.
