The Cure Parkinson's Trust is pleased to have been involved in support for this recent report.

"This report provides insights about the repurposing of off-patent medicines, including how the drug regulation system and national bodies can support it and how to navigate the different routes that support access to repurposed drugs for NHS patients. It is currently the case that outside the licensed use of a medicine, existing frameworks for off-patent use are available to prescribers and their patients. Yet, greater support is needed to help prescribers and the respective commissioning bodies in their decision-making on the use of off-patent medicines, where this is clinically appropriate. This report, therefore, aims to highlight the support that is already available to prescribers and commissioners, and outlines a framework to improve access to repurposed medicines for patients."
