The Daily Telegraph are next week running an article about the “Enzalutamide after Abiraterone” issue, featuring the appalling and cruel treatment of Peter Smith who is being denied Enzalutamide despite showing remarkable progress on the drug after he self-funded treatment on for the last 3 months. His local commissioning group has refused funding on what are clearly political rather than clinical grounds. 

We need to know how widespread this problem is. Please can and ask any of your members who have been denied Enzalutamide to get contact me with brief details, so that I can pass that information back to the journalist concerned. She may wish to speak with some of them.
