Campaign groups Global Justice Now and STOPAIDS have welcomed a statement by NHS England to the BBC’s 5 Live Investigates this morning that “further regulatory action may be needed” on drug pricing at a time when NHS funding is under severe pressure.

Treatments for cancer, arthritis and multiple sclerosis (MS) are among drugs costing the cash-strapped NHS over a billion pounds a year – despite public funding playing a substantial role in the medicines’ development.

Responding to reports that Donald Trump will make a 'working visit' to the UK in the New Year, Nick Dearden, director of Global Justice Now said:

“If the Trump visit is back on, so is the mass opposition to it. Theresa May may be hoping that the heat has died down, but she must prepare to be disappointed. Every day that Trump remains President, the opposition to his politics of hate and prejudice is only getting stronger. Whether the location of this ‘working visit’ is the heart of Downing Street or a golf resort in Scotland, we will be there.
