ANP urges Prime Minister to act on controlled drugs legislation

“We can therefore see no reason for continuing delay” in making the necessary changes to controlled drugs legislation (see here), writes ANP Chair Barbara Stuttle recently in a letter to the Prime Minister, David Cameron. She points out that all political parties and all professional groups support the changes and that, until they are implemented, very seriously ill people are facing delays in getting adequate pain relief. One consequence can be unnecessary hospital admission.
