Access to Brineura – Rich family campaign

I’m really pleased to have the support of the lovely Rich family from Throckley in this election.

I was absolutely over the moon when the NHS ruled that Brineura, the drug that treats Batten Disease, will be available via NHS England by the end of this year.

It’s been a long, hard-fought campaign by the Rich family to get access to this vital treatment for their lovely daughters Nicole and Jessica, which I was pleased to support in any way I could.

I will always fight for families in Newcastle North.
